I have now been suffering for 5 months now. I have been through about
every test imagineable. The only tests I havent had were ph test ans barium swallow. I have trouble eating and taking any of the ppi's and acid reducers. I am so scared. My emotions get the best of me sometimes. When I take a ppi drug or acid medicine I feel like it is burning me worse causing tighness in my chest and a sore throat. I even get very hoarse. I have mucosal lining missing in my esophagus...they say severe IBS constipation. Nervous bowels. I already knew that. I have chest pain all the time and my breast bone burns along with my stomach and intestines. I do not know who to turn or what to do anymore. All I want to do is heal. I have confusion and fear. I am at my wits end. I keep telling my self it could be worse. I feel my systom is so off balance it just doesnt know what to do. I wish there was a balance between western medicine and natural healing medicine. It seems its one or the other. I took my protonix before bed last night and It gave me the same effect. ( C I went off of everything but some natural healing products) The antacid products cause Severe throat hoarsness and burning, tightness in the chest and my breast bone hurts worse. I do not have alot of heartburn symptoms. I have more inflammation symptoms and soreness.I have constant burning in my upper stomach and lower esophagus where I am severly inflammed. I do not know if I am refluxing acid or just gasses. Or anything.I am bloated all the time i have burning in my intestines and never fully feel like i am relieved when I go to the bathroom. I would love to find a healthy balance between my food, supplements and perscript
ions. I have been to doctor after doctor. I just want to find a way to heal that is right for me. I have such a sensitive system I cant seem to get used to anything. Now fear of never healing and cancer setting in is a big fear. This illness is becoming life debilitating. I have kids and a life and its hard to deal sometimes when I am constantly in pain. I just wish someone would say day 1 do this day 2 do this day 3 do this and so on and so on.
This forum has been so helpful. I do know any medicine that goes into my esophagus feels like its burning me bad. Scared and confused. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
