Hi, new here. I have been suffering with sickness, extreme dysphagia, weight loss and chest pains for 12 years. I am 27 years old. I have had repeated endoscopies over the years which never showed anything significant, however the one I had this week shows probable achalasia. My weight has plummeted to 7.5st. I seem to struggle with all food and liquids other than water. I have to drink several glasses of water whenever I eat to 'push' the food down. I can be sick anywhere between 5 and 20 times per meal. It has been extremely distressing for me to have faced frequent accusations of being bulimic or this being all in my head. I even wake up vomiting in the middle of the night. I feel like this condition has taken over my life.
Im interested in hearing your stories. Is there hope yet?
