Hi all, been a vary long 10days for me I have had gerd for years, but about 5 days after sedation from a colonoscopy mt GRerd is back with a vengance, I feel my food going down, always want to burp, fell non burning chest pain and in my back that comes and goes...dont want to eat, losing weight, feel like my esoph is a irritated gravel road, anxiety is at 110%, TAKING PROTONIX, not able to fucus at work....al because I cannot stop thinking I have a big tumor in my espohagus when they to the Endo tomorrow, I had an endo done in late 2004, had no barrets, but a HH and irritation, I have had these episodes 2 tiimes before and they past, but since its been 8 years since my last scope I am CONVINCED THAT i HAVE EC. Have my scope tomorrow, soo terrified of them walking in after and breaking the news...
DO you sufferers get the following? do any of you get really afraid that you have cancer?
Trouble swallowing (like its going down slow and you can feel it every step of the way.
Feeling to burp immediately after even water.
Burnuing and pain about 2 hours after eating?
brping fire and food up.
Feeling something stuck in there.
Afraid its cancer.
Has anyone elcse been convinced of cancer and had the scope down and learned they just had typical irritation from gerd. I have been on PPIs' for years, and as far as I can tell my gerd has been about 70% under control most of the time, does anyone think this points to EC?
Please pray for me, can anyone relate? does anyone have a story to give me hope, and is Barrets and EC really the death sentence Dr. Oz said it was (you tube his show about gerd, its scary and I fell he should have noted the real deal on how prevalent EC actually is)
One other thing, I was given Klonopin for anxiety, its seems y GERD sypmtoms while still there, are less, can some of this be me creating worsening symptoms?
