Until a few weeks ago I thought I was a success story here but I fear I'm a complete failure and I don't understand why or what is best to do.
A few weeks ago my lpr symptoms started sneaking back despite my taking 40mg nexium and 40mg domperidone per day and also Gaviscon Advance.
My symptoms are lump in throat, horrendous burning mouth and horrendous chest pain.
I'm waiting on a ph test but that's in 6 weeks and I won't see the GI consultant for another couple of weeks after that. Each day seems to be a bit worse and now it's hurting to swallow,and food is getting stuck. I'll be honest, I'm terrified I've got something awful. The pain is constant, both in my mouth and throat and in my chest. I've been in floods of tears.
My gastroscopy at the end of April was clear apart from Barretts, the one I had before that when I had these symptoms ( before ppis) showed grade 2 oesophagitis and Barretts.
I have a gp appointment tomorrow and don't know what to do? Do I insist she sends me back to the GI as my symptoms have radically worsened? Is there any way of lessening the symptoms ( I have already made all the lifestyle mods and drink alkaline water)
I'm at a loss, just don't understand why this is happening to me. So scared my oesophagus is getting damaged again. I just don't know what to do. This condition is ruining my life.
