Latest endoscopy showed scarred esophagus , which surprised me as previous 2 scopes done 3 years didn't. Even though for last 3 years I can regurgitate undigested food soon after eating or during a meal.
?3 days ago had a horrific incident at lunch ...I ate a piece of thin , dry , crispy flat bread and immediately I could feel the pressure in my upper chest and feeling of stuck food in my oesophagus. I kinda ignored it (as in past) gave it a few minutes and ate some rice (again dry and hard) had a few mouthfuls with waiting for a minute between mouthfuls. However the pressure and pain in oesophagus increased with the feeling of food stuck all the way to the throat. I rushed to toilet and made myself regurgitate food....undigested but in thick saliva and mucus (as expected) then had a mouthful water ....automatic regurgitation of water back in my mouth. Back in toilet and continued with forcing food back up ....spent 15 minutes doing that until the pain subsided and the feeling of stuck food went. That was the end of lunch. Since then I have been afraid to eat anything except soft mushy food like noodles, mashed potatoes, mushy peas.
?I haven't been to the gastro as Dr Google showed that only solution is surgical widening of the oesophagus. Studies showed that even domperidone had no real effect on it.
?I love eating and eat out socially but could not have this incident repeating in company . ( people would assume I am bulimic )
?Has anyone else experienced this and how did you overcome it . The thought of soft mushy food forever is a sad thought as much as I live noodles and mushy peas
?any suggestions ?
