Re: So Paranoid Can't Eat
Your symptoms sound very familiar. I don't have them, but work with a lot of people who do.
They have been diagnosed with a disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis. [removed]
It is treatable, but requires an endoscopy with biopsies to get a correct diagnosis. There are support groups for people with this disease.
I have been put to sleep for the scopes I have had. I have had both endoscopies and colonoscopies. I have a form of this disease that affects the stomach, small intestine, and colon. Fortunately for me, mine is not in the esophagus, but I do have a very strong gag reflux. I could never tolerate anything in my throat awake, and have a rough time even when I am asleep according to my doctors... A number one gag reflex I was told... lol....
I wish you luck in getting a diagnosis and proper treatment for your problem, no matter what it turns out to be you need to feel better.
