So I use this site all the time to cope with some of my problems, So I have decided to share my story.
2 1/2 years ago I gave birth to my second child. 5 months after my son was born I had my gallbladder removed due to gallstones. Ever since then my stomach has reck havoc on my life. One day talking on the phone I coughed really hard and started gagging, I looked at my throat and noticed I had a big piece of skin hanging, after rushing to the doctors he told me it was from a tonsil stone. So after I had my 1st app with a ENT he told me I had really bad acid reflux (silent reflux because I never feel acid coming up). so I stated taking Prilosec 40mg 2 times a day.. worked fine and weaned my self off. All was good for a while until 6 months ago I started feeling like there was always something stuck in my throat, it was so bad I would my self anxiety and rush my self to the ER. I went bad to the ENT and he told me it was Globus sensation and its from acid aggravating my esophagus and it takes a while to heal. So I went back on Prilosec twice a day. He also told me to go to the dentist and talk to them about
TMJ because I have been getting chest pains and the jaw clicks every time I
open it. ( Yet to find a dentist that takes my insurance that specializes in TMJ in Philadelphia). Just recently I have been getting really bad chest pains that is in my left chest and goes under my rib cage, down my left arm then other days its on the right side. so I finally got a upper endoscopy done 2 weeks ago. NO Ulcer and no infections he told me I suffer from Esophagus Spasms!!! Ugh Thought for sure I had a ulcer. He prescribe me 40mg Protonix twice a day. So confused right now, I don't know what is wrong. I still been having chest pain, neck pain, scared to eat, lost weight. I don't know if its TMJ or what. Also I have been Burping and really gassy lately?? Anybody have any thought?
