Okay, this is getting me very nervous. started a month ago. had some chips before bed and felt it when I woke up. also, I have this tightening in my throat feeling like gas is in my throat and I keep burping (very upsetting and uncomfortable) went to the doctor and I take omeprazole 20 mgs in the morning. I thought it was feeling better (as he thinks its GERD but didnt run tests) but I am getting feeling again.

I do take zoloft 50 mgs and a little xanax (very little) and my panic attacks went away but now I have this! I work as a musician and vocalist
and its very upsetting. I even wake up with feeling like food is in my throat. what is this?????
I tried pepsic AC over the counter before the omeprazole, didnt help. I was always able to eat everything and we eat healthy, but mediterrean type food , which could be spicy, but I cut out the spices. I never had anything like this? it feels tender by the collarbone area.

any ideas?

Im female and middle aged.

Have you discussed any of this with a GI?

It sounds like you have a weak LES or a stomach emptying issue.

A GI will be able to run the tests you need to help you get better.

Welcome to HealingWell and Joy has advised you well. Do make an appointment with a GI physician and get a dx. There are many options available for members with GERD.

Take care and stick with us,
