Has anyone else had any of these symptoms?
Diagnosed last year with post infectious IBS, this progressed to feeling of lump in throat, and constant burping, very bad chest pain, sore throat and burning tongue. Finally diagnosed with small hernia less than 1cm and put on omeprazole once per day PH study was negative. Barium swallow 1 showed mild tertiary contractions in lower 1/3 of gullet. Manometry showed a lot of failed peristalsis - Consultant put it down to my sore tongue!
From Feb, life settled down fine, and was tootling along. Then had visitors ate a more "normal diet" and then started some cardio exercise - nothing strenuous, move on a couple of weeks chest pain back and developed swallowing problems. Throat red raw but vocal chords okay, nodules and a cyst in mouth and it feels swollen. Barium swallow 2 - showed a lot more tertiary contractions with barium pinging up and down the gullet and not really going into LES, hernia now 3cm. Went for manomety and it was a good day spasm wise - typical - this showed weak peristalsis and on the five fast swallows LES did not open. PH study showed weak acid mainly gas with a score of 10.4. Lower Sphincter pressure 8.
I am still in daily pain, I have upped my omeprazole to 40 x 2 a day, but the pain in lower gullet is immense - it feels this morning as though I am about to give birth out of it! I can get the pains just from swallowing my own saliva when I wake?
I don't even feel like eating but am forcing myself too. I'm due a videofluoroscopy next week and due to see a surgeon soon, God I can't go on like this.
