I have suffered bouts of heartburn and belching off and on for a couple of years.The past few months have seen an increase in belching constantly and very loudly with heartburn and on one occasion i had hearturn all night and throught i was having a heart attack.
I do like very hot spicy food and drink alot of coffee and alchol a few times a week.I have since reduced what i think are these triggers but feel like i might have caused long term damage.
The following symptons i am getting now are:
Pressure in chest and throat when waking up
Belching from throat
Feeling of tightness and strangulation feeling in throat together with lumpy feeling
Occasional stomach pain
Feeling really uncomfortable mainly in throat area where i belch
I can eat food ok
Went to docs 2 weeks ago where i was asked if family history of osophegeal cancer which really scared me.She put me on 40mg daily of Omeprazole which dont seem to be doing much.
I am going back to the doctors this week and asking for an endoscopy as cant go on with this problem as really getting me down!
I am really hoping that i don't have cancer and was wondering what else it could be and if anyone has had similar symptons to me?
