For a year and a half I have been on 20mgs Omeprazole in morining and 10mgs at night, Domperidone 10mgs twice daily and Gastrosoothe 10mgs twice daily.
Developed adult onset asthma.
Last few months have had to use mylanta alot more.
Had a bout of pneumonia and i think the antibiotics have caused some damage.
Was doing ok with not much dysphagia then last two weeks got swelling in my outer neck and cheeks and very sore throat.
Took antihistamines as ED thought it was an allergic reaction. The antihistamines just knocked me out or got bad side effects.
They tried to increase my omeprazole and it made things even worse.
The sore throat and not being able to swallow got extreme.
I went back to original dose of omeprazole as the increase they suggested made my symptoms worse.
I Also got told to cut out gastrosoothe a week ago to see if that was the allergy.
A week later i am sitting here with consistant gurgling going on in my tummy...a sore throat constant dysphagia and cant eat anything but yoghurt which i only started up two days ago.
Drinking water now is an issue and can feel water logged.
Last night acid reflux was extreme and took mylanta twice to try to releave it.
Now the acid reflux is apparent all day today.
I have been struggling with breathing issues at times and the swallowing issue and it has been two weeks and over it.
Why did it all just go wrong and hwo do i get mangement back.
Doctor suggested i try Ranitidine 150mgs at night.
I am booked in for my endoscopy 1st December.
Are there ways you can eliviate this dysphagia and throat tightness so i can sleep and relax.
I am not eating as if i do it makes things so much worse also.
At a loss any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
