I am trying to figure out what is wrong with me and am wondering if anyone shares the same symptoms.
I was extremely stressed out 6 weeks ago and kinda had a mental breakdown. Prior to this I was yelling a lot at a 17 year old (my younger sister) who is a drug addict and tried running my household after i let her move in. After I kicked her out 2 weeks later I started getting horrible panic attacks.
I started getting a sore throat out of nowhere and then it progressed into a burning sensation from my stomach up my throat. The burning could be slightly felt on my tongue and roof of mouth as well. Accompanying this I had odd little bursts of feeling like I was being choked in between my collar bones. I feared cancer due to my health anxiety and went to the doctors.
The nurse practitioner said acid reflux or GERD was the issue and prescribed me novo-pantoprazole 40 mg once a day. I took these for 3 weeks and the burning would not dissipate. I went back to see another nurse practitioner who prescribed me apo-ranitidine 150mg twice a day. I was given a thyroid ultrasound (still awaiting results) a blood test for thyroids (came back clear) a normal blood test (came back clear) and a throat swab due to the practitioner saying my throat was red (still awaiting results). I have an appointment scheduled with an ear, nose and throat specialist but am unable to get an appointment until August.
The burning sensation has gone down but gets worse if I talk for more then 10 minutes at a time and if I laugh.
I now have a sharp pain in the right side of my throat.. kinda like where my lymph node is.. but not tender or painful to touch on the outside. It seems to send a sharp pain up my throat and into my right side of my eye nose and jaw. I do have my wisdom teeth which are impacted so maybe it has to do with that?
I am very stressed and depressed due to all of this.. I feel like I'm alone in these feelings and I can't seem to get any clear answers.
S.O.S please help.
