it all started 25 days ago. One evening after a quite nice meal (Italian) I felt like I had air trapped in my upper back...it was terrible. I spent the evening pacing up and down and finally, with a series of chamomile teas, I burped and was better..but from that day on I haven't be well. At first anytime I wuld eat I would feel like cathar in y throat for almost two hours. Then I started feeling like "swords" - I am trying to describe a starnge feeling - coming up into my throat and throat ache when swallowing. At time, but only for couple of days, I had burning sensation in my stomach and pain in my uppr back. One day the pain in throat, after having used my voice a lot the night before, became really awful so that I went to A&E. They did checks for heart (all ok) and I had my throat check by a specialist with a rigid endoscope, all ok. My symptons fluctuate from the pain in the throat (refer to "swords sensation" and scratching, to sensation of tightness at the throat, to sensation of throat swallen when swallowing) to sensation of cathar. I went to the doctor, explain the situation, she gave me antibiotics thinking that cathar was left in my throat by the flu (that in the meantime had with high temperature, cold and cough). The antibiotics made me feel so bad - feeling sensation fo strangling in my throat - that I stopped them after 4 days (the cycle was 7 day). I went back to the GP and he said that it might be acid reflux - although not really convinced - and prescribed PPIs. I took my first PPI yeaterday. All other symptons are gone but now I feel like my throath cloggs up when swallowing. Nobody did a test on me to actually see if it is GERD. Today I did not take my PPI. Dunno what to do. Help!!!
