    Hi Stephen

    I (and many others on this site) have also had the Endoscopy and it does show if you have any damage due to reflux etc but I wouldn't worry about the 'C ' word as from what I have read this is very rare. At least when you get the results you will feel better for knowing.

    Hi Ive been taking omperzole for 1 months and a week and im already feeling better, though theres a feeling of something stuck in throat and im nauseous all the time. I also have a hiatal hernia( resulted from a barium swallow test since i was afraid to do the endoscopy).

    My doctor told me ill keep feeling it till all of the acid is healed.

      Your omeprazole will reduce the acid so any reflux is less dangerous. Your hiatus hernia makes reflux easier and if it travels full column can breach the upper oesophageal sphincter which is controlled by the cricopharyngeus. This muscle can tighten or spasm in attempting to prevent reflux causing the lump in the throat feeling which is globus.

    Yes I have pain on the right side of my jaw the side that my throat is irritated on , I know I have tmj so idk if they are both connected . Now I have an ear infection on that side. I can't imagine going through this for years you must be so fed up, I know I am after half a year with these problems , they need to do more research on this because they just send you to doctor to doctor, I hope everything is okay with your endoscopy.

      I guess you sleep on your right. If you can manage to sleep on your left side (and raise the bed head by 6 to 8 inches), nocturnal reflux is reduced.
