Hi - I started with acid reflux on holiday last December and was quite bad over Christmas. I was put on Ezomprazole/Nexium and now im on one per day 20mg. I suffer from bad anxiety and also health anxiety and now although im not getting acid as such im getting a really irritated throat when i concentrate on it. I have had the odd bout of acid but im not sure if its linked to stress. I hate being on these tablets which is adding to my anxiety. I have a hospital appointment on June 21st and im not even sure what to say to them. Can they test if I am suffering from acid and if its medically caused? or are my remaining symptoms simply psychosomatic and how can they tell? ive got myself into a bit of a mess over it all and i get so paranoid that it will come back that im focusing on the feeling in my throat all the time waiting for it to happen. Its like I have a heightened feeling of awareness in my esophagus. I dont want the hospital to think im wasting their time as i am in an endless cycle of worry and it happening and dont know what advice to ask for. can anyone at all help? thanks Jo
