I've just been through some horrible anxiety related health scare where I was first sure I had a brain tumour then convinced I was dying from testicular cancer. In the end the only diagnosis I have been given is acid reflux.
It started a few months ago when I felt like something was stuck in my throat that I needed to clear. It came and went and was worse after food. Doctor said acid reflux but would prescribe something if it persisted. During my recent anxiety it has all been a lot worse to the extent that I feel something is stuck down my throat and having pains in my chest or back. I am also having more heartburn than usual and can taste the acid in my mouth.
The doctor prescribed lansoprazole and I've only been taking it for 2 days. I did worry myself that it could be cancer but the doctor dismissed my worries as I'm a 31 year old non smoker that doesn't drink much either. If my worries continue I'll push for an endoscopy.
I was just wondering if anybody else had some good advice on diet and things to avoid? I want to clear this as quickly as I can and help myself any way possible.
Thanks in advance
