Hi. I have been suffering for many years from i only now understand is a gastro disease. I first thought it is an ENT condition, because i have inflammed everything in throat area, my symptoms are soreness, uvulitis, redness..
There is one symptom i cant tolerate anymore. I yawn all the time trying to catch a breath. It is so difficult that i cant concentrate on anything. I have become extremely depressed, i lost interest in all my hobbies that i now cant do due to my breathing condition.
What really scares me the most is that i read that damage to the esophagus or esophagus spinchter is irreversible. I am also sick of people and many many doctors telling me it's all in my head, cause i know it's not. I would never ever stop participating in intelectual activities that made me alive, but this condition has for instance, stopped me from reading novels that i loved.
I have gastroscopy in Oktober , and i have some questions:
Are there any success stories of people getting rid of this breathing related problems? If it will be confirmed that i have silent reflux( cause i have no burning pain), are PPI's any good? I read they have nasty side effects and we also need stomach acid..
Any advice appreciated, i am desperate.
