I am completley driving myself nuts with my symptoms. This has completley consumed my life and I've now pretty much convinced myself I have the 'c' word. I know it's not very likley because of my age (26) but I've turned into a compulsive 'googler' and all of my symptoms point in a bad direction.
My symptoms are:
-feeling like food is traveling slow down my esophagus but not any food imparticular. I sometimes feel like one small piece of rice takes a while and other times I can swallow steak and not feel a thing.
-'gurgling/bubbeling ' sound coming up throat when laying down
-pain on right side of chest and under right shoulder blade. I feel it mostley in my chest when Im laying down or sitting up from bad and when I move a certian way. And my back seems to be more when Im reaching for something.
-when I drink really cold water I feel what I would describe as two little 'spasms' in my esophagus.
I've had a CT scan of my neck that went to just below my breasts. and all came back normal. A neck ultrasound (normal) and two blood tests that were normal. I'm not sure what the one test coverd but the second one was for my life insurance so I'm pretty sure it tested alot. (normal)
I'm taking Nexium 40mg. and not having any problems with reflux anymore.
My doctor has me set up to try Physical therapy on monday and I'm getting a chest x-ray on Thursday.
Does anyone have these symptoms? ANYTHING to ease my mind a bit would be GREATLY apprectiated!
