Last September I visited a chiropractor and rather foolishly had something to eat before hand. I had mega acid coming up into my throat and felt terrible afterwards. Very high anxiety kicked in and back in November I had an endoscopy and was diagnosed with a small Hiatus Hernia. I have suffered very badly with reflux for over 6 months and it's affecting my throat. Last week I saw an ENT consultant who looked at my throat and said it was inflamed which fits in with the hernia and reflux. I'm taking Lansorozole and Gaviscon but so far I don't feel any better. I feel very scared and depressed that it will develop into Barrett's and I'll do permanent damage to my throat. I have been through a period of severe stress for this last 18 months or so. Is there any hope? I don't smoke or drink alcohol and am trying a bland sugar free diet. Does this take time to settle down? Would be glad of anyone's help or advise. Thank you.
