I have been struggling for the past month and my doc is now referring me for a gastroscopy.
My main symptoms are
constant need to burp (can't always do one though)
tenderness where oesophagus meets stomach
feeling of lump in the throat
I am very sensitive to meds and was 'happily' on just 75mg ranitidine a day, with no problems, until this all started just over a month ago.
A long period of stress AND a few weeks on ibuprofen for a very bad back preceded this.
My doc told me to increase the ranitidine but it has all just got worse, to the point where I woke up choking on acid last night.
I have read that low stomach acid can have the same symptoms but my doc is not interested in this theory.
Am very lost and getting very depressed and scared now.
Does anyone have any advice please? I am at my wits end
