Hi there, so glad I found this forum!!!
I've been suffering with symptoms to the point of being unable to concentrate anymore. I have been diagnosed with hiatal hernia, meniere's disease, and GERD. All without proper tests as I would have to travel over an hour to get to them and I am a borderline agoraphobic so won't leave town.
I have a burning lump in my throat, burning in the chest area between my breasts sometimes radiating to my back, burning in a centralized area right where my ribs meet. Now all this burning is constant although sometimes it burns less, then more, then less again.
I used to have nausea which is horrific to me since I am an emetephobe (severe phobia of throwing up). I'm taking one 75mg zantac every 6 hours which pretty much takes care of the nausea and am doing exercises that keeps the vertigo and dizziness at an acceptable level (symptoms of the meniere's disease), but the burning is still there. I tried taking Pariet (aciphex) but it made it worse for some reason.
I'd like to know if anyone else has these symptoms and how they live with them.
