After two years of eating problems and difficulty swallowing I have been diagnosed with Achalasia. My original doctor suspected GORD and prescribed Omeprazole which despite being increased from 20mg to 40mg has done nothing to relieve the symptoms. Swallowing difficulties have meant the eating and drinking socially is something I do my best to avoid.
At the beginning of this year I recognised that I was depressed. I know one reason for this was the lose of a very close friend. However, I also suspect my eating problems have had an negative effect on me emotionally. I would be interested to know if anyone else has experienced mental as well as physical effects from Achalasia
