Hi - I am a 40 year old female and I consider myself fit and healthy. I went to Florida in December and in week 2 I started with acid reflux. I put it down to the junk food and assumed it would subside when i got home. Unfortunately it hasn't and my doctor has put me on Lanzoprozole which was over two and a half weeks ago. My acid is still here although not as bad but it is not going away and some days i feel like its going into my lungs and making my chest tight and full of fluid. is this normal? Some days I feel like i am getting better then it comes back with a vengeance. I just dont understand it. I am booked back in to see the doctor a week on wednesday when i have completed by tablets to find out what will happen next. Any ideas what this will be? will he refer me to a specialist for an endoscopy? any idea how long the whole process takes? I have bad health anxiety which doesnt help the matter but i freak out with worry when it returns as I keep thinking something more sinister is causing it and i just want to find out what? any help would be really appreciated. Thanks Jo x
