Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with a hiatus hernia about 8 years ago. I've been on 20-40mg omeprazole since with no problems. Since Christmas last year I've been experiencing a lump like feeling in my throat when I swallow. It's perfectly fine when I eat or drink. I swallow so much now my mouth and throat feel dry most of the time. Some time I can go 3-4 days and it's gone and I feel fantastic and so happy it's gone but then it just comes back. I dont think I'm eating anything differently. It's making my life a misery. I'm feeling depressed. It's making me tired and irritable and I can't be bothered to do all the things I enjoyed before. On the days it disappears I go crazy doing housework and going out for a drive as the days it comes back I don't want to do anything. It's fine when I'm asleep and for about an hour in the morning before it kicks in again. Been to my gp 3 times. He gave me anti inflammatorys, Amitriptyline and sent me for a chest X-ray which was fine.
I'm at my wits end. Could it be the omeprazole? If I don't take them though I get terrible burning in my tummy. Any medication suggestions?Please please any advice would be so happily accepted
