Shortly after having my 3rd child I felt a tightness in my throat and like something was stuck. I saw an ENT who looked into my throat and saw some redness so he figured silent reflux. A month later I went back with no relief from prilosec. I also felt food getting stuck in my throat at that point. He suggested a barrium swallow. That test cane back fine. 6 months later at my GP she suggested a percribtion for prilosec of 40 mg daily. This helped for a while. About 3 months ago I got a sinus infection and was put on amoxicillion. While on that I started to feel sick everyday. like being car sick or morning sickness. Went back to doctor and they suggested 80 mg prilosec. I told them first I want and endiscope done. Got that done and was told some inflamation, barretts esophagus and a small nodule that needed an ultra sound scope. She then gave me these pills that I choke on everytime I swallow that are meant to coat my stomach before meals. I did the ultrasound scope and that doctor said I had such a narrow esophagus that he had to use his smallest scope but everything looked fine in my stomach, gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancrease. Its been 3 weeks since that scope and I am still bloated and nauseated every single day. Rare for me to actually feel heart burn but I do get a burning in my stomach and lower stomach as I have IBS. Is this GERD? How do I get rid of this nausea? I wake up looking 9 months pregnant and cant stand fitted clothing. Eveytime I call to ask my doctor a question I get told to come back in but I cant afford it. Everytime I go in they say just some reflux. I cut out caffiene, alcohol, citrus fruits, almost all tomato based foods. I do get chest and back pain too. Its even worse after those pills get stuck in my throat.
