Thank you all for taking the time to reply its much appreciated.
I'm in England not USA so I don't know if the doctors do things differently, but they didn't offer to put me out for the endoscopy when I couldn't have it done, the doctor said we'll treat you for acid reflux as its more probable it's that. Not very good I know. I'll speak to my GP and see what he says.
Hi Erica, with regards to diet I've implemented all the things you said apart from going gluten free. I did have a blood test for coeliacs a few years ago and it came back negative. I will take the supplements recommended as I have read about
the deficiencies PPI'S can cause.
Hi JellyBeanz, I'm not surprised you had fears about
surgery I'd be terrified! I feel that awful at the moment I think I'd let them come and wheel me into an operating theatre now!
I feel so sick I can't eat. I have never been sick with this illness I just feel really sick. I don't get heartburn just a burning at the back of my throat and sometimes acid coming into my mouth on a night.
I shall try and sleep propped up tonight I have a wedge, not very comfy but I'll give it a go
