I will be making an appointment to see my Gastro tomorrow. I have been suffering with Gerd for 13 years and something new has developed and I don't know what it is exactly. Maybe someone here on the forum has experienced this and can shed some insight on what this is. Im experiencing, regurgitation, lack of a better word. Its regurgitation but not to the point that I feel it coming up into my mouth. Basically, after I drink a liquid or eat something it goes down and Im assuming it makes its journey into my stomach. Within minutes of consumption I feel it coming back up on me. It will make it up half way up my esophagus then I'll swallow and it goes back down. When it comes up there is a sense of pressure in my chest area (e.g in my esophagus) and its there for awhile. Even when I think I have pushed the contents down the sense of pressure remains. What could this be? Is it the actual contents moving up and down or are these esophageal spasms?
What's interesting is that I woke up this morning with an empty stomach. I took my one nexium pill and drank 2 sips of water to get it down. I felt the water and maybe the actual tablet come up. Then that pressure was there. Now its not pain but more of discomfort that is constant. But it is annoying and making me worry that this could be a bigger problem.
Has anyone here had something like this?
I have been diagnosed with weak motility this past May when I had my manometry done. But if I have weak motility how in the world could my esophagus push content back up if it has a problem pushing content down?
I am going to get a floppy nissen performed on me next year. Do you think the surgery will help with this type of surgery?
