My condition: Suffered from GERD for 13 years, on nexium 40mg one a day. Cannot get surgery bc by esophagus is too weak to handle Lynx and/or Nissen.
So I had some bad oatmeal yesterday. Seems the milk was bad. I had bad cramping all day. When I got home from work the sypmtoms got worst. Reguirgitation started, constant burping, nausea. This went on all night. During the night I suffered from more acid reguirgitation and I started to notice that when I would swallow my saliva it hurt on the way down. I felt it the most around the junction of the LES.
Around 4am the nausea, regurgitation, and cramping subsided. As Im walking to work and just swallowing my saliva I can feel it. I have never experienced this.
So I bought myself a bottle of water and a plain croissant just to put something in my stomach. As I take a small piece and swallow it, it hurts at the lower junction. Then it feels likes its coming up a bit. Then I take a gulp of water and I can feel it go through the junction (with pain). Is this the onset of dysphagia? Or could it be from the excessive acidic exposure and the inflammation of the lower junction?
Anyone have any insight.
