So i've had acid reflux on and off for about 8 months, its been getting alot worse recently. At the moment for the past 1 and a half weeks i've been getting pain in my throat and pain everytime i swallow my own saliva.
However when i'm eating foods i don't seem to have the pain? Can anyone maybe tell me what the problem is? Also does constant painful swallowing that isn't easing up after a week and a half even with taking gaviscon and esomeprazole mean that i have some kind of damage to my esophagus?
I saw an ent doctor a month ago who did a nasal endoscopy and said there was acid but no damage but now since the pain is worse and the swallowing trouble I fear there may be some damage. I saw him today again but he didnt do another nasal endoscopy he has asked me to make an appointment for a barium swallow, quite concerned at the state of throat atm, is this a genuine concern or am i overreacting?
Any advice would be appreciated!
