I'm a 26 year old male, slim build and active tho I have asthma.
4 weeks ago I woke with heartburn that got worse after eating breakfast I had the heartburn filling for three / four days which has got better in the chest area now but I'm still getting a burning in my throats and burping when I eat, at night I get a very sore burning filling and can feel it burning as it is right now.
The burn as been continued for the last 7 days now and not getting better and worse at night I also have a cough with small bits of flem also which is worse when waking in the mornings.
I suffer from health axitiy and now believe I have cancer of the throat, stomach but mainly of the oesophagus.
None over the counter medication is helping so I visited the doctor who as placed my on Lansoprazole 30mg twice a day for a week then 30mg a day for three weeks of which I have been taking for 4 days now.
While sleeping I'm awoken I can hear noise coming from my mouth also followed with burning pain. Mainly in the thraot area upper chest followed with coughing.
I then come downstairs to take gaviscon which actually cause the durn to worsen straight away before getting a little better letting me nod off after being awake for a hour or so.
So far I have raised my mattress 5-6 inch for my head and upper body.
Cut out all spicy foods, fatty foods and fizzy drinks. Specially take aways.
I don't smoke or drink well I have maybe 2-3 beers a week which I have now cut out completely.
I'm worried that because I have continued burning in he upper chest and throat everyday and specially every night for 4 weeks now it's not Gerd but cancer, may sound stupid but I'm really struggling now and stressing not wanting to eat or sleep.
