Helpless with Heart Burn

 Six months ago I started to get a weird lump feeling in my throat.It was driving me crazy!Then,I started to get a hot lava feeling and when I leaned forward I would feel like it was gonna come up.
 So,I went to my doctor who is 80 years old but the most brilliant doctor I have known,but he is getting tired,I can tell.Anyway,he tells me without barely looking at my throat that I have  Cricopharyngeal spasm and he said nothing can be done for it.He tells me it is just because I am nervous and sends me home.I know I am a nervous person but this continued on and it happened even when nothing terrible was going on in my life,now it is all the time.
 I did my own internet research and found it is GERD and he was correct about the  Cricopharyngeal spasm which is made worse by anxiety but now I face the issue of what can I do for it??I do not want to take anti acid because recent studies have shown it is very bad for you.
Somebody,help me out with some ideas.OR at least tell me if you have this and what are your symptoms?

a was diagnosed with GERD about a year ago, and given liquid Tagament which really helped. Honestly, about a month after taking it, she was fine. I think that it helped retrain her. She hasn't taken it since, and she's a-ok!

I'm so sorry to hear that - you are so young and should not be dealing with such things already. All I can do is offer you some links for support groups that I found online, but maybe your local hospital or health care provider can refer you to some kind of educational program, counseling for stress, etc. because you can have stress and not even realize it, only your body knows.

Good luck! Let us know what you found out!

Kind Regards,

Bad Breath Cures said...

hope this helps you, I had acid reflux and awful painful heartburn. My friend told me to check as it helped him get rid of acid reflux and his post nasal drip. I've been following advice for about 4 months now and I feel much better, also at work people are not avoiding me anymore so it seems to have cured my bad breath as well.
