I was wondering if anyone could offer any advice for a condition I have just found out I have and which appears to be rather rare.
For about six months I have been suffering from a burning sensation in throat/chest, dry throat, lots of burping and gas, some nausea and a bitter taste in my mouth. The problem came on seemingly overnight. At first it was assumed I had acid reflux, however having been through many tests it has now been confirmed that this is not the case.
I have had blood tests, an ultrasound, endoscopy, 24 hour pH testing and manometry, Today I saw my consultant and he confirmed that everything was fine except the manometry, which has shown that liquids (but not food) sit in my esophagus for much longer than normal. He admitted to being a bit stumped and offered no suggestions for a cure but told me he'd like to see me in two years' time for a review. My lower esophageal sphincter is working normally, so surgery would not help.
Personally I feel that there may be another issue such as food intolerances going on here, as certain foods such as bread do seem to make it worse. I wonder if perhaps I have always had this esophageal issue and it is simply aggravating this new problem.
I was wondering whether anyone else has been told they have dysmotility concerning liquids only, and if so if you have any tips?
Thanks for your help!
