I have suffered with reflux for many many years now but 2 months ago i was eating a salad at work and the lettuce got stuck in my throat causing the acid to push up in my throat which has caused multiple problems in my life. I have a constant lump in the throat, clear my thoat all the time and worst of all i cant swallow sometimes, like food or liquids and sometimes even wake up when im sleeping not been able to swallow. I often feel down and depressed because of what is happening. I went to the specialist last month and he said i have reflux and prescribed pantoprazole 20mg to me for 6 months. It has helped a bit compared to two months ago when the incident happened, but i seriously cant take this feeling anymore of not been able to swallow properly. I love food and now i dont even want to eat anymore because im scared of what the consequences will be. Is there anything anyone can suggest to help me? I cant keep running to doctors as it costs alot of money and im not on medical aid. I would like to continue the pantoprazole a little while longer, but if something else will help i will definitely try it.
