dysphagia came back

Hi. I was struggling with Dysphagia all the way through last year and by result ended up severely ill. I then was given omeprzole 20mg from my G.P. and they seemed to work well considering. I am still taking them but the Dysphagia is coming back I have tried other meds PPIs etc in the past but they seem to cause more problems i.e bile overflow etc. I am now feeling a little bit low in mood wondering when this is going to end but this is because i want to eat certain foods which i enjoy as it doesnt taste same from blender.

Re: dysphagia came back

Hi,elsajo.I had trouble swallowing solid food Sept last year (2010).I still have trouble but is improving.My Disphagia was just one of the symptoms of Polymyositis,which is a rare blood disease where your immune system attacks your muscles.It took me until Feb this year to find out what was causing my loss of weight and upper & lower body wasting.Thankfully my upper body is coming back to what it was early days,but my thigh muscles have a long way to go & I cannot get of a normal height chair without using my arms to help.I hope your disphagia is just that & not a Polymyositis symptom. Good luck,
