Hi friendly gal,
I posted to you earlier today, but for some reason it isnt appearing on this trhead.
I do not know if I have a motility problem, but I think I do know how you are feeling.
I am sooo sick of feeling like this. This disease is consuming my life. I am so tired of feeling sick, I want my life back, but I dont know if that is possible.
I have had gerds for at least a year now. I also have esophageal spasms and throat spasms. I also have that lump in throat feeling and I feel like im strangling sometimes. about a month ago, i developeed a new symptom and that is that my swallowing reflex isnt working properly. I have been on protonix for a year, with some satisfaction, but not completely. After the swallowing symptoms occured i went to dr and she sent me for barrium upper gi which came back as full reflex, including upper sphincter and lower sphincter, ,gastritis and hiatal hernia. She put me on zoloft for anxixety and now im on nexium, which i havent noticed any change with that med at all so far. I still have some swallowing prolems although it susided for awhile, but it seems to be back again. Dr said it from the acid affecting the tissues in my throat. It freaks me out like u wouldnt believe when it happens, and now Im afraqid to even attempt to eat. My ears are plugged alot too...Such strange symptoms sometimes, but they all are quite scarey..and cause me such anxiety. I was so afraid i had a tumor and that is why i couldnt swallow, but the upper gi proved that to be wong, thank god...Yet, still when it happens, i do freak out. Which in turn makes me more anxious and doesnt help my condition at all...Anyways, i know uve gone thru alot too, and just waanted to touch base with you...misery loves company and all! Thanx for listening,
