Hello everyone! Hope everyone's Christmas was good! Mine was great even though I worked, money is always good! (: My daughter broke her arm for the second time this year, so I was a little upset and having those scary heart palpitations when they told me they may have to put her under to re-set it, but thank God they didn't have to. Of course I was a wreck and left my heart monitor at home so it didn't catch the palps. But other than that time, of course I haven't had any to catch, which is a good thing, but Id still like to catch some so they can tell what is causing them and what kind they are (which I'm pretty sure they're the PACs that was found on my 24 hour monitor..). Im thinking about going back to my E&T dr.because of course with anxiety if it aint one thing it's another, but even though with the Prilosec everyday, at times I still feel like food is stuck in my throat and it's not going down. Of course when I googled it, GERD came up, and right under it "esophageal cancer" but Im not skipping to conclusions because everytime I do that I freak out so Im like heck no, I know that's not it, so it's probably GERD. I already know I have gastritis and acid reflux and heartburn indigestion etc. but I don't like the feeling of feeling like Im eating too much when Im not just because the feeling of the food (usually bread and carby foods) not going down and it feeling like im going to choke. Anyone else have these symptoms? What Dr did you see? I don't want to be sedated! No no no! Last time they stuck a hose in with a camera through my nose and seen my esophagus was irritated and gave me zantac, I never took it I have been taking Prilosec 20mg for almost a year that my PCP prescribed me for my Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I also take Excedrin everyday for the passed month which is aspirin/caffeine for headaches/ neck pain it could definitely irritate it I know but its been like this even before I was taking it everyday. My throat also feels like someone is choking me like its really tight. But I haven't been letting this all affect my anxiety because I have been pretty calm and I don't want to panic for no reason so Im coping however I can to stay on track. Any feedback is appreciated!! Thanks!!
Have a good night everyone!!
