Hi, I’m a 36 year old white male, and average build at 6’5’, 215 lbs. I was diagnosed with GERD about 1 month ago after my ENT Doc put a tube camera down my nose, but I now realize GERD is a condition I’ve had since my early 20’s. In October of 2018, I had my right lower wisdom tooth and back molar removed, and that caused major complications with my health, leading me to hospital for sickness 12/18/18 and 12/26/18, X-ray, thoracic CT scan performed as doctors thought I may have had some type of lung cancer. Fast forward to today, I’m still “feeling off”, have developed anxiety (which I’ve never known) and am convinced that my current symptoms (daily pain in my throat/chest/esophagus/trachea, hoarse voice at social events, daily GERD, and feeling “off”) can be nothing but “esophageal cancer”... and I’m totally freaking myself out... I have an endoscopy with GI Doc scheduled for 5/9/19. (I also have a tumor (lipoma), diagnosed 2/18/19, being removed next week. And I’m scheduled for dental implants to replace the tooth in May as well, after endoscopy)(My career is hi stress/pressure too, as I’m sure all people are)..... Any insight here is appreciated. Thanks!
