It all started 10 weeks ago when i went to the doctor, he thought i was suffering from a chest infection and gave me antibiotics and steroids, got no better and started bringing up food in my throat, he thought the steroids were to blame and said i had reflux. Since then ive had 8 weeks of hell, he treated me for h pylori (without doing a test i may add) to no avail. Ive had a whole load of symptoms that i wouldnt have even thought possible with reflux. Pins and needles and muscle spasms throughout body, adrenaline rushes, eye strain that causes weird feeling in my head, dry mouth, white foam, difficultly breathing, lump in throat, rancid bowel movements, i could go on. Ive been to get an endoscopy last week, and they said i had an inflammed stomach, gastritis and 2 polups that theyve taken biopsies from. I feel so down, this isnt me anymore, i lost over a stone and everytime i go to the doctor they just say its anxiety (which ive never suffered from before). Im convinced theres something wrong at the top of my chest that theyre missing, sounds weird but im getting funny feelings throughout my body when i swallow and struggle when breathing in. I feel like im going out of my mind, i feel no one is listening to me and im really scared. Looking to here for a bit of support. Any advice and reassurance would be gratefully received. Sounds silly but i really feel like im goin to die sometimes :-( colleen
