So then you all recommend an ENT vs a GI? Yeah, I will talk to my PCP. She's really great. I like her a lot. She seems more on-the-ball with the stuff my GI tests came up with than my GI was. For instance, he said nothing to me about
needing another EGD later. It was like, as soon as I didn't have Crohn's, it was just an IBS sort of thing, and I wasn't as big a fish to fry. Lol. I'm sure he had sicker people to worry about
, it isn't that I wanted a lot of attention or anything, but I'm not sure I'd go back to him for this. I hate doctor shopping. I usually luck out. But oh well. Plus, I really didn't like his nurse. She was quite ignorant. She confused my duodenum with my esophagus, and when I called her on it, she told me I was wrong, and that the duodenum was the junction of the stomach and esophagus. ?!??
So if it is acid causing my throat/voice problems, why don't I get that "vomit in your mouth" feeling?
Things to avoid diet-wise in the meantime: citrus, caffeine, tomatoes, etc...right? Anything else to avoid? Thanks everyone.
