Hello! This'll probably be my last post for a while since I've brought up this topic a lot. Sorry about that! Anywho, I've had this problem for a week now. It all started Sunday around midnight, when I got a lump in my throat constricting my breathing. I was panicking, looking up what caused it because it happened so randomly. I eventually went to the hospital due to my panic and hyperventilating(i was really worried since it never happened before) and was told it was anxiety. I was discharged but later that day around 5 PM I was driving with family when my breathing was constricted once again. This time too I felt nausea and was hot. Went to hospital again and was given Prevacid. Now for the next few days up until Thursday I had an awful burning sensation in my stomach and bottom esophagus. I constantly felt full, and could barely eat without nausea. I felt awfully fatigued, and it was a struggle to stand without lightheadedness. On Thursday however I began to realize not eating most likely made me feel worse. I made a ginger-banana smoothie that morning, had a hamburger for lunch, and two slices of pizza for dinner, which probably wasn't the best choice, but it helped with my stomach a lot. Now it's Friday, and I was feeling great again until around 5 PM ish, when I have an icky feeling again in my tummy. Its that feeling when you eat too much, but i also had a headache all day which made it a little worse. I made a smoothie this morning with yogurt, banana, blueberties, and strawberries, then had some slices of leftover pizza for lunch. I'm managing to do normal things again such as driving, but am trying not to push myself. The lump in throat also went away, but I am now left with a sore/itchy throat, mostly centered where the lump was. My endoscopy that was scheduled for Friday was now moved to the 19 of June due to someone else needing it more, which is understandable. I have no idea what caused this problem. My diet before was not the best, had junk a lot, but the only thing out of the ordinary I had eaten was a bowl of menudo (Mexican dish with tripe, hominy, and a broth made of red chili), but that was eaten the Saturday before at around 10 AM. However that was the first time I had eaten it, so maybe that was the problem. I have had no vomiting nor diarrhea, and have had bowel movements almost everyday (not much though), but there was also mucus in my stool when I checked today, and I'm also constipated. I'm only 16 years old too. My main doctor Has now prescribed me with Nexium and I started taking that today, and stopped the Prevacid. Has anyone else had this issue? I've never been diagnosed with IBS or GERD, nor had anyone in my family. Any ideas what this could be would be appreciated. Thank you!
