After being told for 14months that I don't have an acid problem - actually I do.
After the barium test today it showed that my hernia has increased to no 2-3cm, and there is reflux. Also my entire oesophagus is in complete spasm and even the barium wouldn't empty properly out of the oesophagus, it was just going up and down!
That would explain why I have had such problems swallowing and the pain in the breastbone is like an elephant sat on my chest stabbing me.
I'm told reflux causes this, and would be very grateful if anyone who's had this could give me some advice.
