I'm a 54 yr old male. Reasonably fit runner, non drinker non smoker.
I'm beginning to get worried. My GP seems certain I have IBS.
But for the last four months I've been experiencing ever worsening Reflux symptoms. I get pains in the stomach area and the oesophagus feels as if I've swallowed a peanut and its got stuck.
However I have no issues swallowing food. In fact I enjoy my food.
Everytime I do swallow (not just food) but a reflex ordinary swallow, I feel it in my gullet and get discomfort in my stomach. This is without fail.
I'm on 40mg Omeprazole each morning and 300mg Ranitidine each evening. Neither appear to have an effect.
Further visits to my GP have told me to continue with the medication. Though as I've told my Dr. they appear to have no effect.
Previously (20 months) ago I had an endoscopy finding a HH. However since this endoscopy I've been without symptoms until their return several months ago.
