I am at a loss guys. I was told its gerd by my primary. Going to see a specialist next week. So far I have been using prilosec otc, 1x a day. I guess it helps, but I cannot touch a lot of foods and the only thing I can drink is apple juice and water.
I do not experience "heart burn" or stomach pains. All of my pains reside in my throat and chest. Swelling feelings, tightness, cannot swallow saliva, lump, thats from the throat. Chest pains that mimic a heart attack I guess you could say. That happens when I eat a bad food.... Im just trying to see what I can't and cannot eat. Im not eating badly just because I dont care.
Tomorrow I am having easter dinner and darn it I am SICK of this disease. I want to have some normal food. So I bought the gaviscon, cost me $10. Its extra strength. It tasted milky, like a candy.. it started to dissolve as Im chewing and all of the sudden it felt like my throat was going to close right off. I immediately spit the pill out and started rinsing like a crazy person. Has anyone experienced this? Also, will this Gerd ever go away? I can't imagine living the rest of my life with these horrifying throat pains. I am 30 years old. :(
