Well, I had my appt with the pulminory doctor today. My GI referred me to him. After my endoscopy on 5/24/12, my GI doc, said no signs of reflux. I have been feeling what I think is chest pain when breathing and I think it's caused by acid reflux. Although, my acid reflux is not really responding to treatment and I don't get that burning in the throat feeling.
So is all so very confusing. So, I saw the pulminory doctor today and I had some chest xrays done (don't know results yet) and then I am having a complte pulmonary test done soon (waiting for them to call me back for an appt). Anyway, I'm wondering how common it is to have airway involvement with reflux? I have a feeling I'm going to hear "very common" but I just want to ask.
Also, I had been take carafate suspension liquid before my endoscopy but stopped about 4-5 days prior. Would just have scewed my scope results. I mentioned this to my GI just before my procedure and then I was out because of the meds they had given to me.
I've been googling symptoms of lung issues/chest pain and there is just so much stuff...
I think it's reflux but then why would like Prilosec or those type drugs work for me if I have high acid. The only thing they do is making me miserably bloated and cause a huge lump in my throat...
