Hello everyone, I am a new member. I have been lurking here a little bit and it seems like alot of people here have what I have. I am 31 non smoker about 20 pnds over weight, have lost about 18 though. I was diagnosed with hiatal hernia and reflux (gerd) from an endoscopy. Well, I am so afraid of cancer because I still feel like something is in my throat and I have wheezing and I need to cough all the time I know I drive my family crazy with it. I am having SEVERE anxiety because of all this. After I eat I feel real full and like My food can come back up. I am on nexium 40mgs daily. Does this ever go away? I think I have LPR. I am afraid there is a tumor in there and they did not see during endo. Am I overreacting? Anybody advise. Thanks Alot.

Hey Autumn, thanks for your reply. Dont worry about the endo I had one and it was not bad at all. I am going nuts over all my symptoms still. I just talked to my doc and he gave me a list of things to do and said I need to be consistant with my meds, taking them 2 times a day and not 1 like I was. nono   I am going to call him in a few months if nothing has subsided. He told me to cut out all coffee, I am going to go crazy over that! He also said my symptoms are normal for my reflux and hernia. I am still scared its something worse. He said he looked at my throat and it seemed fine during my endo, they just dont get a very good look because they focus on the esophagus but they do see it. I hope all is well with you. Good Luck.

I am so nervous and upset about seeing my new GI doctor tomorrow. Hope he will give me some time and communicate with me. I have tried to lose weight and have lowered caffeine intake. My reflux was so bad that it stressed me out. My saga is pretty strange anyway. The whole thing has me nutty. Thank goodness I will be busy before my examination.

I know how you feel joan. I am a nervous wreck about all my symptoms and just want them to go away!!! My mother in law said all I d is cough, I know it annoys people but I cannot help it. I feel like I need to get something out of my throat all the time, I feel it right between my chest!
