Around 5 weeks ago, I ate a piece of food that was very hot. I drank water as soon as I could but soon after, I began to feel discomfort in my esophagus. I knew almost instantly it was going to be a rough ride.
I've been to my doctor and for the last 2 weeks have been on Omeprazole (20mg) as prescribed by the nurse I saw in UCC. Even now I still feel discomfort in my chest, a slight burning sensation every now and then. I wasn't given a roadmap for potential recovery time and I'm concerned that this isn't getting any better. Perhaps most annoyingly, the nurse didn't prescribe any pain meds - so I'm basically feeling the full effects of this.
What steps should I take next? Should I wait 4-6 weeks (as I've read online) or should I go to my GP and press for a more in depth look? I'm quite concerned about all this.
