      Hello Shirley,

      yes this had been going on for already now for 6 months and yes Dr's know suppose to be scheduled for esophageal manometry test but in between that they say 7 days before the test you cannot take any of your meds which is making it worse and really am not doing that much better taking them. just sent an email to my doctor after going to the hospital on Saturday which they ran a lot of tests but said that I really needed to have this test on urgently sometimes I think doctors just don't want to address your concerns or they don't know what to do. however it's taking a toll on me and I do not want to have surgery I can't believe that they've allowed this to get out of whack like this and go on like this as long as I have been suffering through this but the same medication Omeprazole for so long one GI doctor just said I don't know what else to do I mean it's crazy and they don't want to put you in the hospital to spend money for whatever reason all I know is I'm losing a lot of weight and it's I'm getting terrified now and I'm suffering horribly I'm hoping that I can hold out for this test on the 8th to measure my acid level and go through this and eat not sleeping but thank you so much for responding it does help.

      🙏

      Michelle ..i cant believe how long you have suffered...with out any real.help and treatment....its really is disgusting!!!the very least they could have done......is started some tests...to find the cause...i do not like it that you are losing weight....this should have motivated them into.doing..some thing ...because this is not a very good sign...and should be checked out soon has possible.....to find the cause....if they dont help!! You.must take the matter in.to your own hands...to.get the required help you need....do you.have a good family member..or a friend...who will help you?.....you must get them..to go with to.AandE...tell them you have been feeling really poorly....now!!!..and unable to cope any longer..with your situation..not a lie...because i pick up on how desperate you are ...and how unwell you.are feeling...take your medications with you...and explain they are not working....and exactly how bad you are feeling.....and how long you have been waiting for tests..do not forget...the weight loss....that alone is a huge worry!!.....hopefully you will see some one...who will see that you are very unwell...and they will admit you!!.....and carry out the tests you need...to find the cause.....please dont think,

      . you are cheating or any thing like that!!... But i feel now your problem...is now urgent...because of your weight loss....and needs to be dealt with.......and deserved!!....do not wait till you lose more!!...sometimes...we have to take matters into our own hands...in.order to.make people aware...and get the help we need...if you have been so unwell... for that length of time...you need to be seen...tests done...and treatment...soon has possible... .make sure you take someone...with you to.A andE... Who can vouch for you....how long you.have been feeling unwell...and losing weight..... My very best thoughts are with you......Shirley.

    hi Michelle, sorry to hear you're going through this. I do get feelings in my neck, throat and face when my reflux is bad. right now I had a tight pinching feeling in the muscles around my throat and neck. sometimes it feels like ongoing tension and other times a bit more sharp and a brief pain which goes after a few seconds. I also get a tight feeling in my jaw where it joins as well as sometimes a sharp pinch on the inside of my jaw under my chin. the problem I have is I also get health anxiety so I'm really uptight when my reflux flares up. anxiety can cause so many horrible physical symptoms so I don't know if mine is the reflux or because of the anxiety.triggered by the reflux. I hope you get some answers soon. x

      Hello Genscott.

      never thought I would be going through this right after retiring 33 years from health care loved helping others. Now 1 year later still fighting unable to keep weight on eating is a struggle. I pray Each day that I can maintain I do get panic attacks don't sleep it has wrecked me. I pray for each and every one of us that we will have a break through were still here we still have purpose! God bless us on our Journey.

      Blessings.
