Ive been suffering on and off for around 9months.
It started with a problem swallowing like something was stuck in my throat.
I find it consciously difficult to swallow, not necessarily during eating just as you swallow normally throughout the day and wouldnt even realise doing it.
I would get a tightness around the breastbone too. First GP visit, as id recently had sinisitus, gave me a nasal decongestant to see if it was a build up in my throat from that.
I then got some Omperazole on the next visit to see if it was acid reflux and suggested the throat feeling can be really down towards the stomach. These didnt work. My dad suffers acid reflux and only lansoprazole worked for him so asked my doctor to try these instead.
Didnt get any better. Ive had the Camera down,found no problems and didnt take any samples from inside, said throat muscles looked a bit warn and suggested barium.
Visited doctor again, now trying Pantoprazole 20mg. Again no differences, I thought made worse so alternate between those and my remaining lansoprazole.
Ive since that the Barium Swallow test with it feeling very difficult to swallow. Came back all clear.
Something definitely not right, its hard to describe how it feels when swallowing, its like i cant swallow probably and feels like. Usually just after ive swallowed a drink or food i feel it going down like a gurgling, like some gets stuck in my throat then releases.
Has anyone else had problems like this, Ive done reading about hiatus hernia, surely if i had this the camera would have found it, although when i had camera, it didnt feel too bad, unlike now.
At no stage has my diet been mentioned if it really is acid reflux and possibly not got th correct tablet or dosages correct yet
Where do I go from hear?
