I probably almost did have a breakdown just yesterday actually; my symptoms are not budging, and if anything they're worsening. I cannot take much more of this, and fear I might actually go mad if there isn't a cure for what I have. I'm being given "treatment" for my anxiety, but it isn't going to work because the source of my anxiety is in the symptoms, which just WON'T GO AWAY.
- Burning throat
- Tight throat, so tight I become dizzy
- Lump in throat/Sore throat first thing in morning
- Cannot take a full, deep breath
- Arm/Chest/Head pain
- Worse when swallowing or after standing up first thing in the morning.
The only thing that even remotely helps is to not swallow. Alkaline Water (ph 9), saliva and even Gaviscon Advance bring on my symptoms. Only eating dry/thick food like bagels gets rid of it for about
5 minutes, or until I swallow again. I even become dizzy when I swallow saliva. THIS IS NOT NORMAL. It scares me, it couldn't be anything other than reflux but I CAN'T CONTROL IT!!!
I know I say this all the time, but this time really, I cannot take much more of this. I cried my eyes out yesterday but the symptoms kept going. I've never been so stressed. Every time I Google it all, the answer is the same LP-incurable-R-! I'll go insane if I'm proven to have that-! I've been screaming to the heavens when I'm alone, begging for help.
I can feel the damage taking place in my throat, a cold or burning feeling, lump in throat, tightening airways. So why are the Peptests negative? Why is the Restech probe's study "inconclusive?" Why can nobody see any actually damage with their scopes? Why don't the "miracle cures" that work for everyone else work for me?! I can't take this!!
