I have bad acid reflux. Helpp.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Im starting to wonder if my bad tooth has anything to do with my situation.. 

About 3 weeks ago, i was eating a piece of sausage and it felt as if it got stuck in my throat.. little did i know that was just the beginning.. 

i have had 2 EGD’s done. Throat stretched twice & some dilation back there as well.. 

They say i have acid reflux real bad and my stomach is bad inflammed.. aside from that, they dont see anything thats causing me to not be able to eat. 

Im having a esophagus manometry done Tuesday & im terrified! Then on Thursday i have to be put on the 48hr study thing to monitor the acid in my stomach.. 

I havent really ate anything in the last few weeks. Ive relied on meal replacement drinks. Ive also had anxiety problems since this happened.. im losing weight. I just wanna be able to eat. I keep feeling as if mucus is in my throat and i just need to keep coughing it up. 

I have a bad tooth that has been hurting and probably has some infection in it. Maybe if i get that fixed it’ll help.. idk. 

Im glad you feel better! That globus is horrible!

    Just in case I would definitely go to the dentist and have that tooth fixed . Also , have them check you for H pylori .

    People who have H pylori have no idea where they picked it up , but it would sure explain some of your symptoms . It’s a very nasty bug .

    Sorry to her you’re having such a hard time. Just to say, I was scared about having the esophageal manometry as well, but it really wasn’t nearly as bad as I had thought it would be, and hopefully it might give you some answers. Good luck.
