Difficulty Swallowing - GERD, Hiatal Hernia and Nodule on Thyroid
I have been suffering for over 4 months, first 3 months could only drink ensure. Now I can eat soft solids and baby food. I take Zegerid twice a day and Reglan 4 times a day. My esophagus was stretched over a month ago and now they checking for Akalasia. I've had a barrium swallow, MRI's of the soft tissue and bones of the neck, ultrasound of the thyroid and Xrays. I was in the emergency room twice with dehydration and am on my 3rd set of ENT's and Gastrologists with no real answer as to why I can't swallow properly. I have an MRI of the brain and new barrium swallow with a speech pathologist and different consistancies of liquid 2/3. I'm also see a Cognative Behavioral Specialist and Medical Hypnotherapist because I have developed an alleged anxiety toward food. I even tried to check into an eating disorder clinic but was told they couldn't help me because I don't have an eating disorder. Anyone else living this nightmare?????
