hello all , this last year has been hell for me both physically and mentally. i am 31 . i started having gerd symptoms about a year ago exactly . my symtpoms were a bit different . Constant excess salivation which never stops , ever . and constant burping . the burps are harsh at times and seemingly for no reason regardless of if ive eaten or drank anything . when i saw gastro they immediately said it was likely gerd and put me on 40 mg omeprazole . They did check for hpylori but was negative . but never wanted to do an endoscopy . the medicine seemed to help innthe beginning . i didnt change my diet very much at all . it seemed to become manageable for a few months until about last month. i now have been experiencing heartburn /chest pain for the last few weeks off and on .admittedly my diet hasnt been the greatest m i also have a mild pain while swallowing in my chest . that is the part that freaks me out the most and has me on edge . food seems to go down just fine, but evry couple of bites of food i notice a pain burning / pinching feeling in my chest . sometimes ill get a burning feeling for no reason at all even before a meal . i have an apptment on jan 10th where i will push for an endoacopy . the anxiett about this is killing me and the excess salivation and swallowing onkt worsens my anxiety . has anyone ever experienced anything like this? i am scared about the idea of cancer obviously , and the swallowing issue has left me freaked out
