Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

I have been suffering for over 3 years now with no relief.
My doctor did a bunch of testing including an endoscopy, colonoscopy, ultrasound of gallbladder, cat scan, blood work, stool tests, I've done it all.
Well I quit taking my Prevacid he gives me because its just like taking a tic tac and I've tried Nexium and I'm allergic to that.
On top of that I think I've tried every over the counter acid reducer/antacid there is with no relief.
He says I don't have GERD or acid reflux because my burning that I have is too low.
I burn around my belly button area and have frequent nausea now. The nausea started just the last couple of months though.
I don't throw up, I'm scared to throw up and choke.
I can't eat solid food, I haven't eaten regularly since this all started 3 years ago.
I don't know if its the weather change, allergies, sinus drainage or what but lately my throat feels really really raw in the back of my throat and it feels like behind my tonsils and around my ear canal in the back of my throat burn. My throat tightens up all the time and sometimes I wake up because it feels like I'm having spasms in my throat.
I am scared that if I do have acid reflux or GERD and my doctor misdiagnosed me or didn't diagnose me at all that I have done permanent, irreversible damage to my esophagus and its only going to get worse.
I don't have the feeling of acid coming up in my esophagus or throat just the occassional burning feeling.
Sometimes also I have green stools and my stomach feels like it just got put through a meat grinder.
I bloat up all the time even if I just drink water.
Please can anyone help me? Does anyone feel this way too? Please post if you can help or have any advice for me at all.
I can't afford to go to the doctor, I was recently laid off so there goes my health insurance.
I'm scared and don't know what to do but if I have severely damaged my esophagus I want to stop it.
Anyone who's ever had an endoscopy and your doctor came back and told you that your esophagus was inflamed or raw and red what happened next?
How does your esophagus feel if it has this severe of damage to it?
Its not a food allergy because I don't have to eat or drink anything for this to happen.
My throat has really been burning like fire for the last week.
Tonight just sitting here it is starting to burn again. Does anyone when their acid reflux or LPR flares up does it feel like your throat is tightening up?
I can mostly feel the burning behind my ears. Kind of a weird spot I would think for my throat to burn, its definitely my throat burning but I can feel the burning behind my ears in my throat, if that makes any sense and the back of my throat feels really tight.
Is that normal?
Also one other question, sorry.
Why does my throat burn so bad when I take a prevacid dissolvable?
Is my throat that severely raw and damaged.
Anyone else on the prevacid dissolvable tablets? Do they make your throat burn too when you swallow them?
