Scary setback; never been worse
« on: June 22, 2014, 06:37:30 AM »
I'm not exaggerating about this; if someone in the medical profession doesn't believe me and help me asap, I'm afraud I might die. In fact, last time I was as bad as this was over a year ago when I'd never heard pf LPR reflux. There is a pattern to my current symptoms, and it's too much of a coincidebxe to be called anxiety - it began when I tried to return to a normal lifestyle and diet by eating junky food around/on my birthday. Ever since, I've been plagued with God-awful symptoms that actually make me count ny blessings about before.

All day, 24/7 my symptoms switch back and forward in the following way:

- If there is nothing in my throat, it becomes extremely tight and my tongue gets tense.

- As soon as I swallow anything, from water, to saliva to Gaviscon Advance liquid, it gets stuck above my airways. Within 3 seconds This makes me unable to take a full breath because of a blockage, which also blocks up my nose for some reason. I also get the following, alarming symptoms:

/ Feeling like I'm going to pass out from chest/head pressure
/ Arm, chest, back, abdonmem and head pain.
/ Gasping for air, especially when I'm on the verge of fainting
/ Post nasal drip making things even worse
/ Cannot swallow food; gets stuck
/ Palpitations from lack of oxygen
/ Tiredness very suddenly
/ Sweating as I continue to struggle to breath
/ Jaw/Neck tension
/ Feeling a wad of thick mucus stuck above airways

Worse when on the move too; swallowing constantly relieves things for a bit, but one swalloe of thick food/Gaviscon/thick saliva and it comes back. Alkaline and hot water also make things worse (but not always) and my diet/lifestyle is as strict as I can make it again. It isn't allergies as I have none to common things.

I thought I couldn't cope before but this tome, I don't think I'm going to survive. And of course it's all being labelled as stress - I want to run to A&E but I know what they'll say too. If it is reflux, I have to wonder why nothing is catching it in the act? Last time I ate that bad was around my PH probe, which was 'inconclusive' and I didn't have anything as bad as/like this..! I admit things are more stressful recently, but only because of these symptoms-!

How old are you?

Also, I'm confused - in one part you say you eat junky food then say your diet is as strict as you can make it.

If you felt better on your old diet, go back to that

I'm only 23; what I meant before is that I usually try to stick with a reflux diet; the one time I chose not to was when this all began. Now it doesn't matter what I do with my diet, I'm always feeling awful.
