Sick of this pain and anxiety

I'm lying here in pain, frozen with panic and not getting any relief from pain kil.lers and anti spasm drugs, my nerves are gone here, have tried everything for reflux and nothing works, can't go on with this is driving me mad. Panic attacks with pain and reflux. I'm going in for my third endoscopy on Tuesday, and I'm sure I'll get the usual nothing to see here result. At the end of my tether here need help please.

Re: Sick of this pain and anxiety

Join the club - I have anxiety and panic over this whole situation. I get nausea, belching, bloating, and I have no idea what triggers it food wise. Nothing has worked for me and I get my first endoscopy tomorrow which I know they will say nothing is wrong. They been telling me this is all in my head which I don't enjoy bringing on nausea. I have almost every test and everything keeps coming back negative. I know how you feel, you just want your life back but anxiety and panic will make it worse. So try to be patient and I know it is hard to do.

Re: Sick of this pain and anxiety

good luck today and I will have mine today! I am actually excited about it because I hope they will find something so I can deal with it and then live on. When you don't know what is wrong it makes things worse. With time we will all find the answers.

Re: Sick of this pain and anxiety

I just wanted to share something with you guys and girls regarding endoscopies. I was having trouble swallowing food. The food was getting stuck in my esophagus and I would have to go the hospital to have the food removed while under anesthesia. This happened at least 5 times. When I went for my upper endoscopy the doctor took samples for biopsy. The results were a rare disease called "Eosiniphilic Esophagitis." You should ask your doctor about this. It is very rare so I went for a second opinion and it was confirmed. I also have GERD and IBS along with Depression/Anxiety.

Re: Sick of this pain and anxiety

As a temporary fix, I suggest buying Licorice root in powder form, mix it with water/milk and honey. It works very well for my partner.

Re: Sick of this pain and anxiety

Well they didn't take any biopsis from me because everything is normal, so back to square one for me. Its soooooooooooo frustrating

will try the liqorise root powder, I have to go back in 6 weeks.

Its normal to have to wait for biopsy results as they have to go to the lab.

Re: Sick of this pain and anxiety

I have tried the GLC tabs and honey, but nothing helps the throat irritation. It never goes away. When will it go away???Anyone had experience with this and got relief?

Re: Sick of this pain and anxiety

I'm very sorry you're in pain.

I find manuka honey helps a lot with my GERD and related pain. I'm also taking apple cider vinegar, which has worked well.

There was a noticable improvement when I started taking apple cider vinegar. So I think it definitely has a positive effect. It also helps with my constipation.

Manuka honey also has healing properties, especially the active manuka honey.

I still have to watch what I eat though. I pigged out a bit at a sleepover last night and now I am paying the price...

ETA: some apple cider vinegar seems to have taken care of that. For now.
