Could I get your opinion. I have been having what I thought was Acid Reflux now for about four months. I don't have a "burning" sensation, but I have a discomfort in my chest...almost like something is stuck in my esphogus. I don't have any of these issues at night while sleeping.
I saw my GI Doc and after my endoscopy, he saw no signs of reflux and everything appears to be normal. He said it may be a trachial thing since this runs along the esphogus and it is that that I may be feeling. In the last month or so, I've also been having pain when I take a deep breath in my chest. I am 50 years old and fit and have never had any asthma. It does run in my family though.
I am questioning this since I really feel that this is acid reflux. However, when I take PPI's (Prilosec or anything similiar), I feel worse and get bloated, etc and my doctor said that is because my problem is not acid..
I think that I have acid reflux and THAT is causing my lungs to become sensitive or something...I just don't know. I'm waiting for the pulimory doctor to call me to set-up an appointment.
Anyone with any experience or symptoms similiar to mine out there?
