Is there anyone else in the same boat as me with silent reflux who doesn't feel the acid, doesn't get any pain in chest, doesn't get indigestion or lumps in throat but does have issues with breathing?
I've had this for about 5 years but quite intermittantly until the last 9 months when it has been a constant but at different levels.
I have times when i can't get a full breath but more and more frequent times of the feeling like someone is standing on my windpipe making breathing a challenge, like breathing through a straw when you are squeezing it. It comes and goes but nothing i seem to do stops it, apart from lying propped up on my left hand side sometimes. I was seeing a physio who said it is vocal cord dysfunction from the silent reflux but nobody has ever confirmed it and nothing i do makes it better, it just gets worse. I'm on a really low acid diet and have been for 4 weeks now but it is not really helping.
I'm due a gastropcopy in just over a week and i hope they find somethng so i can look to then put it right but it's really affecting my life now. It spoils holidays as is affecting everything i do
The only other mild symptom i have is phelgm in the back of my throat.
I have been on Omeprazole and more lately Emozol but have now stopped in prep for my gastropcopy.
Anyone else in the same boat?
