digestion problems

Hi,
I'm posting to see if anyone else has had the same experiences as I am going through.
About six months ago I started feeling a slight pricking pain in my esophagus about half way down. My symptoms over the following months include pain in chest, difficulty swallowing at times (waking myself up with a feeling of being unable to swallow), acid feeling in stomach and mouth, horrible taste in mouth, feeling of teeth not being clean although I regularly brush, light headedness, feeling full when not full, no appetite therefore weight loss. My lower ab area makes all sorts of strange gurgling and popping noises, sometimes although not often I have a cramping feeling low down. I also have another symptom which I do not know if its related which is my right nostril/sinus feels blocked and I can't breathe through it although it's not blocked with mucus, when this feels blocked I also have a tingling feeling in the right hand side of my face. All of a sudden it clears and I will be able to breathe clearly on both sides again. I twitch a lot, especially at night for no apparent when I'm relaxing in bed.

I've had numerous blood tests, chest xray, endoscopy and ovary scan which have all come back ok, I'm pleased to say and I am now waiting on an appointment to see a specialist at the hospital. I have taken omeprazone, esomeprazole and nexium, none of which seemed to help that much.

I don't know if I have an allergy, an intolerance or something serious.

My doc has suggested anxiety, depression, IBS. I am anxious now because of these symptoms but it was not the cause. IBS, maybe but surely that needs proper diagnosing not just the GP saying "it could be IBS".

Any advice would be very much appreciated, thank you.
