Re: "lump in throat" feeling and normal endoscopy, anyone?
HI i was diagnosed with a esophageal ulcer. I too, right now swallow and feels like a lump or somehting is in there. Also when i brush my teth sometimes i feel like gagging. Like when i brush my mollers i want to gag and throw-up. Hard to explain. I take ranitidine, but also am trying prevacid, but seems like prevacid is really expensive compared to ranitindine, so i think im giong to stay on ranitidine, unless i am told prevacid is better.
When I dont eat for a while my stomach starts to really hurt. I read somethign today that says, if you have a ulcer and your stomach is empty, it cause a catabolic state and acidity levels rise. I didn't know that.
Oh yeah I burp a lot. My ulcer is very very small(size of white on fingertips), I had a barrium enema done. I digest food really slowly, and when i lay down it feels weird. I never heard about rasing my bed, but maybe mine is not at that bad of a level. My worst habbit is smoking pot, i dont really know how bad it is for my ulcer.
