I wanted to ask you, how exactly did your symptoms start? Was it suddenly, or gradually? and which one came first?
If you read my previous post you can see that I'm still not officially diagnosed with GERD as I'm waiting for the endoscopy on the 11th, but my symptoms started about one year ago.
After eating I would always feel very full to the point that I wouldn't want to move at all, sometimes I would even have back pain, but that wouldnt bother me enough to go to the doctor, I just thought it was some sort of indigestion. Then it went on like this for months until last month , I started to have some minor difficulty swallowing, and then it got worse and worse very quickly and now I have a sore throat and I feel as if the food stays in my esophagus for such a long time. I also feel some sort of bump in my throat as many people mention.
When I went to the doctor for the first time , regarding this, she told me that I had an infection and gave me amoxicillin for 7 days, but it didnt help at all.
Anyways as I said before, I've been struggling with anxiety for a long time, and that may exacerbate the symptoms I'm feeling, but I honestly feel the PPI's are not working at all-
