Does Anyone Have Trouble With Their Esophagus?

Does Anyone Have Trouble With Their Esophagus?

posted June 17

I have a condition called Nutcracker esophagus. It makes me burp continuously. My new diagnosis of PLS, which affects my ability to swallow. My therapist told me to turn my head and take your pill with water so it won't get stuck.

My esophagus valve was destroyed by GERD so yes. I've lost my singing voice too and I have esophagus spasms that are quite painful.

@A MyFibroTeam Member, Interesting comment. I just learned two of my nieces cannot burb at all. I'm sure there's a name for it, but they didn't tell me. I can't imagine dealing with their problem or yours. Both sound uncomfortable!

Yes, I have been struggling with swallowing some foods. Wasn’t sure if it was fibro related or not.

Get not only your esophagus checked but your vocal chords too! I had a big cyst behind my epiglottis which was removed… acid reflux causes problems talking, swallowing
and breathing sometimes too. Start taking anti acids immediately and see if they don’t help. Put the head of your bed up or get a pillow that raises your head. Throat problems still make me anxious.. try anti acids immediately.
I also added TUMS for right after drinking orange juice or something acidic.
Any surgery scares me because they stick breathing tubes in your throat. I have gotten phobic..get some anti acids right away..also 2 dr appointments. Gastro and ent!
Insist …they find out. . πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈπŸŒΉ Do not let anyone blow you off!!!!!!!!!
