Hi since last July I couldnt eat cos off food and kept going "low" on eating or I would eat a bit of protein and couldnt stay awake. I practically lived on coffee and cream cakes cookies with dinner if possible in the evening. I have always been on Omeprazole. I would sleep on and off all day on eating! At Xmas I had veg and meat. I "dipped" again but the burning in my chest was soo bad. I have lost a lot of weight all over especially face but not stomach. I still have eaten cream cakes and cookes which I am now scared has caused a tiumor despite blood tests being OK. The burning is so bad in my chest all up my throat, croaky voice, shallow breathing bad, cough (now have to take antibiotic cos its caused a lung infaction), Food is getting more and more stuck. When I do actually eat funnily the croaky voice acid burning goes away for a while as if the food for a while is blocking the acid coing up - hence I am scared I have an obstruction. Then when it seems to start getting digested the burning starts - my lips tingle even and now I keep swallowing mucos and have developed a nasal conjestion. I am scard I have an esophagal tumor now cos of the weight loss in face (but my body weight has not change still 11 st. 3). My rings are falling off. I have lost a stone since January but I look sooo old for 65!! I am starting to get hollow cheeks. I wake in the morning with white furry tongue and white round my lips. I also have gallstones for which I am due an op in three weeks but they say these wouldnt cause such bad GERD. I am not absorbing vitamins etc or fat. I have to have laxatives which just cause diarrohea. If I dont take them I dont go for 2 weeks!! I am soooo thirsty but not diabetic. I have choaked recently on my dinner pasta and then felt dreadful! i think I have cancer to be quite honest and all the bad fats and sugar consumption has caused it. I cant eat fruit or much green veg. Is there anyone out there who has experienced such symptoms. My GP has put me on antibiotics and Metoclopramide which contains lactose. I have just taken one - my lips are tingling badly!! He has agreed after nearly a year that I "look unwell" and is organising an endoscopy to be done the same time as my colonoscopy end April but its so long to wait. Before that 9 April I do have my gallstone op. I am sooo convinced my time is up and really really just know I have done a lot of damage cos of the high sugar I have consumed. I really am scared of what they will find. I do have a hiatus hernia too plus an esophagus which doesnt work properly no peristalsis!! The gastro man only did this test last year and said my acid was OK. I was not suffering with the pain then only "dipping" brainwise on eating and having difficulty staying awake.
