Help......I started feeling nauseous in June of last year. My son was really ill at the time and has since died, so I ignored the nausea for several months, putting everything down to stress. During this time I started to develop other symptoms, I had a really upset stomach, the worst gas, belching and bloating ever, accompanied by alternating bouts of diahreah and constipation. My stools went from very light coloured abundant floaters to very dark greasy stuck to the side of the bowl noxious smelling attrocities. Well, I eventually figured that one out. The IgA test revealed Celiac disease. I went on a gluten free diet and after about 6 weeks my bowel issues sorted themselves out. However, I now have an even more distressing problem. Although I don't suffer from continuous acid reflux into the throat and mouth, (just occassionally) Everyday, I can feel stomach acid washing up into my abdomen with the accompanying bouts of nausea I've become accustomed to. This has gone on for months and is still a daily occurrence, then I started having trouble swallowing, I mean big trouble swallowing, as soon as food hit my mouth the hiccups would start, then i would get a squeezing sensation that travelled into my back, really painful. Also, sometimes it feels like the sphincter between my stomach and throat has closed and food just wont go down. Drinking when this happens only makes it worse and I always end up having to vomit it out. When the spasms start all l can do is wait it out or occassionally if it goes on longer than a few minutes I will make myself vomit to relieve the pain, with the vomit comes thick foamy phlegm with small pieces of undigested food (sorry to be so graphic) I have made an appointment with the doctor but have to wait for another 6 days before I can see him due to the christmas holidays. In the meantime I bought some Nexium over the counter (20mg once a day, probably not strong enough to make a big difference) Well, after 7 days days of taking it, I could eat without hiccups and the spasms had almost stopped, also the food I was eating was going down my throat without much of a problem. However, this evening as soon as I started to eat, it's back, my throat closed up, the spasms came back and the only way to relieve the spasm was to vomit. My dinner went in the bin as I was afraid to eat it. I've just now eaten a chicken breast and hummus and raw carrots without a problem. does anyone have any idea whats wrong with me. The way i'm going I feel Ill never be able to eat in company again as I have no idea whats going to happen when I try to eat,
