Hi. I have had bulimia for over 25 years and am 43 years old. This started in an abusive relationship. I tend to have a weak immune system and get sick often. In October, I got strep throat. Antibiotics for 10 days. Well, after that I just couldn t stop clearing my throat constantly and it feels like there is something mucousy stuck in my throat. I also have to cough to clear my throat. Swallowing is painful. Even salivia. This feeling never goes away. I have been tested 3 more times for recurrent strep for the pain and red throat. All negative since the first time. I had a barrium swallow that came back negative. I also had an endoscopy done a couple weeks ago and was told I have acid reflux. He took 2 biopsies and have not gotten the results yet. I see him next week. My result discharge paper says: findings results: acid reflux R Barretts. However he said everything else looked normal as well. I kno2 what Barretts esophagus is. Does this mean he found Barretts or just took a biopsy to make sure I don t have it? I was very groggy after the procedure and don t remember much of what he said unfortunately and my husband thinks it s all in my head. It s not. I m scared they didn t find out what was wrong with me and don t want to live the rest of my life like this, in pain and unable to swallow without having to force Salvia down. I m sure the biopsies are going to be normal and the problem will still be there. It s so frustrating. I have read everything going about reflux/ GERD and have made changes. I am not overweight. I exercise everyday as I also have ospeopenia from the bulimia. Do you have any ideas or suggestions for me to ask my Dr.? She thinks it s from anxiety and I know it s not. I do take prilosec for the GERD but it doesn t help at all and I ve been on it for months. I m so upset to have to go through this every day. Please help me. Any advice is so appreciated. THANK YOU!
