This is my first post. I'm getting sick of living with heartburn and tight chest etc and hoped I might get some insightful advice from my fellow sufferers!
I was diagnosed with "Barrett's Epithelium" and a "Hiatus Hernia" a few years ago and have had two endoscopy procedures so far. I take 40mg of Pantoprazole and also use Gaviscon etc to help.
I also cannot burp. Have never been able to. Saying that, I do randomly burp once in a while and it's such a glorious relief, I'd love to be able to do it more. Instead my throat makes a strange growl sound.
I am (mostly) avoiding foods that cause problems, although sometimes I slip OR seem to get pain for no reason.
And I don't quite understand why paracetamol seems to aggravate it. I have taken some today and have the usual mild heartburn, shortness of breath and a tightening in my chest.
I am hoping to get advice on ways to relieve my symptoms and insight into techniques to help me potentially deal with it better.
