Hello and welcome to HealingWell. I cannot imagine the level of fear you are feeling right now but you are on my prayer list. For members who may not know, LAM, clinically known as lymphangioleiomyomatosis, is a disease where abnormal cells begin to grow out of control and adversely affect organs or tissues in the body. Over time, the disease, which as yet has no cure, can invade the lungs and destroy normal lung tissue.
I am glad to hear you are going to have an EGD and that should help to distinguish if GERD is your problem or something else. I do hate to hear of your making yourself vomit. Would it be possible to back off on eating solid foods and try full liquid as they may go down better for you and stay down.
I hope you have a LAM clinic available to you and that you are getting the best care possible for this disease.
I am glad you joined us and I look forward to getting to know you better.
