For several months I have suffered some significant dysphagia. In the last month I regurgitate almost everything I eat. I went to a GI and with my massive weight loss (40 pounds in the last two months) he did an endoscopy to look for strictures or the possibility of achalasia. One of my good friends is an ER Dr and she was pretty convinced achalasia would be my diagnosis. There were no strictures so next week I am getting a manometry test and a 24 hour PH testing to make completely sure this is the issue.
I'd say the only time I am really successful at eating is when I eat super slowly at my desk while I'm working. Unfortunately when I am out to eat with friends or colleagues it can be really inconvenient. A few weeks ago I went to my first holiday party with my new employer and it was borderline traumatizing because I got up to get sick three times during dinner. Not to mention I had maybe 10 bites of food.
It is a comfort to see all these posts and the different stories.
