Just wondering if anybody can give me some advice. For the past 4 weeks or so I have had food get stuck in my lower esophagus that I then wash down with water. Last week I started to get pain in my upper back between my shoulder blades and some dull pain in my back in general. I went to the doctor who prescribed me 40mg PPI's. Been taking them a week now and my back pain has gone (only returns briefly after eating). The doc said he would send me for an endoscopy which is fine but he said it would be in 4.or 5 weeks. I started reading stuff online which always gets your mind going (probably shouldn't do that) which got me worried so I rang the doc and asked should I be worried enough to pay a private clinic to do it ASAP. He told me to stop worrying that at my age (29) the chances of something been seriously wrong are very low. I did a blood test as well this week. I also suffer from really bad anxiety most of the time and stress about everything. Just wondering from all I've wrote above can someone give me advice as all this is driving me crazy.
Im 29 years old
Overweight (16st) with a fat stomach
Have a swollen lymph node on my neck but thats there longer than my swallowing issues.
Im 5 foot 8.
Any advice would be great.
