I think it could be - the feeling I have is like mint or Vick's flowing thru my chest/back, etc. My dr says it's GERD (after gallbladder removal).
I just had the scope done down my throat and esophagas and they told me I have Gastritis, however the biopsy came back and says I have H Pylori. I also have the cool feeling in my throat along with feeling a lump in my throat. I didn't feel the cool feeling in my chest or back but get chest pains now and then. They want to put me on 2 antibiotics and up my dose of pantoprazole to 2x per day. They want me to be on the antibiotics for 2 weeks.
I see the dr today and am asking him to change my meds as it seems to make my head hurt and also get the shakes sometimes. I don't like how it makes me feel. Maybe try nexium or something like that. I am planning to go the natural way as soon as possible. I am now taking Probiotics and Plant Enzymes which help. I have cut down on food and eating smaller portions. No mexican food,nothing spicey at all and stay away from carbonated drinks like pop. Go to the dr and get a complete diagnosis first that is the best way and the do your own research to help yourself naturally as much as possible. I am praying the antibiotics take care of the HPylori and it will help get rid of the lump in my throat also. The lump isn't always there but it is alot and my throat at the end of the day just feels like I strained it or something and it makes me very tired. Good Luck and I will say a prayer for you!
