ok, guess I did this wrong but want to intro myself. Have had problems w/ reflux (go figure I am a dietitian) for years but about
3 mos ago they started to get much worse where it was an everyday sometimes all day occurence with chest tightness, pain, burning, etc, etc.... now with some new symptoms, which sometimes I can't believe are related to reflux but I guess I'll find out. Have had a stress test in the past d/t my symptoms which came out normal. I am big into exercise and still keep that up as that doesn't bother me. Going for an endoscopy on Monday 8/9 and am just so incredibly nervous about
the procedure, which is why I checked this out. Well, found this site b/c I am going to be writing a book on digestive disorders and wanted to get some ideas about
what people where talking about
. Anyways, I hope to find out Monday what the problem is. I took Prevacid but it didn't seem to help so switched to Zegerid which doesn't help much either. Hoping to get this taken care of soon!! I DO deal w/ anxiety but not on meds anymore and my anxiety is what is making me so incredibly nervous about
the endoscopy! I don't think they will put me totally out and afraid of a panic attack during the procedure. The worry is just my anxiety taking over.
