:shock: I've just found out about this GH thing and found you guys through Google and I love you all!
4 years ago I got good A Level's, it was the summer holidays, I had a part time job. But I started to suffer from insomnia. I didn't feel any stress so I didn't know the cause.
1 year later the insomnia was still there but I began vomitting everyday. I told my GP I was getting this feeling like something globular was stuck in my throat, like a thick blob of something. When I tried to swallow it down it wouldn't go away. He said it was acid reflux and put me on Gaviscon.
For 2 years I took this when the symptom in the throat got really bad and I would start wretching or vomit. The insomnia didn't go away though. I managed to do 3 years of my photography course and had one year left. I was enjoying my course.
But in the last year things have gotten really bad. The globular feeling is there all the time and makes me feel like vomitting all the time. I find I get hungry a lot but even when I eat, the feeling in the throat gets better, but I still feel like vomitting.
I've been on omeprazole and then Nexium Esameprozole but that didn't work. I had a manometry and 24 hour pH test but they found nothing.
I've had 3 endescopies/gastroscopies done and they've found nothing.
This feeling in the throat is always there, the night's are terrible as I can't sleep then I start feeling like vomitting, then I get hungry and have to eat and early in the morning I've been trying to keep my breakfast down but I always end up wretching and vomitting it out. Even when there's nothing left in my stomach my body really strongly tries to force me to vomit.
It got so bad that I was finding it difficult to eat and concentrate and sleep and got so weak and exhausted and my GP ended up putting me on anti-depressents which didn't do much for me. I had to quit uni in my final year - I was devastated.
I emailed some yoga experts and herbal medicine experts and explaining my symptoms to them and medical history. The herbal expert sent me medicines that would improve my digestion and reduce acid secretions. I just started taking this medicine.
The yoga expert mentioned that it could be Globulus Histericus which was the first time I've heard of it. She suggested I should try and do a sequence of Asanas (Yoga) everyday, as well as Ajapaja meditation and Ujjayi breathing in frontal psychic passage from navel to throat with the mantra Soham. I need to look these up. She also said singing aloud religious hymns might be helpful.
So that's what I'm going to try to do and I hope that the GH gets better. The weird thing is that when all this started my life was good, my uni course was going well, I was enjoying it so if it's being subconsciously casued by stress and anxiety - I have no idea where that's come from. I admit I do get very stressed and anxious now because of the vomitting and stuff but I wasn't like that before so I don't undertand how it started in the first place.
So I have to be strong and try out these yoga techniques and pray to God they do something. I'll let you know what happens.
I'm so glad to come across this website and see that I'm not alone and I'm not crazy and that something is wrong even though my GP says there's nothing. Hope you all fair better and take care of yourselves. Sorry for my incredibly long essay I've just written.
