Hi I am new here and had some questions. short story is i had sternum pain for 2 months accompanied by soar throat and increasing cough .I went to the doctor and was placed on pepsid and several over the counter meds. In the mean time he also did a chest x ray, throat culture , ekg ( all came back normal) and an appointment with ENT. The ENT stuck the wonderful camera down my throat and found significant swelling and even some callousing of my esophagus. Obviously been going on for some time. I always attributed throat clearing and cough to seasonal allergies. I was wondering if anyone else experienced some weight loss after starting on the blander diet and meds as all web site's describe this as a serious problem. With all if the tests I've had you would think they would have found something if something more serious was going on in there. Thanks Caroline
