Good thing too, because I had that breakdown today, with 8 days to go. Found myself randomly bursting into tears, but the symptoms kept going anyway; no mercy from the gods, I swear. I keep getting little bits of food - rice for example - and phlegm stuck in my throat every time I swallow, and when I do I become breathless, my vision fades, head and chest pressure kick in and my body makes me gasp for air. It's horrible, and I hope the manometry can pinpoint why it's happening, because I've eaten junky foods before and never felt as much damage as this. I'm scared to make my diet bad, but I know it's recommended for accurate results.
I do have a question though. Along with the manometry I have an impedance study. Originally this was going to be done at my local hospital but they screwed me around with dates and doctors so much I opted for where my specialist resides for more consistency and a faster waiting time. The first hospital told me my diet would be restricted for the day - this new one has said I can eat what I like, whenever I like. I know that's fine with the Restech probe, but won't this risk messing up my results? Also, if it's clear does that mean I have no reflux, even if I have a "good" day?
