Avatar m tn Am I making myself crazy with cancer thoughts? How long does it take the fish oil to stop giving me heartburn if this is the issue? Could it be something else? Can't see the Doc for a few days, and I will go see him. The sudden on set has me questioning everything. It did coinside with the taking of the fish oil, but there still is the chewing issue in the back of my mind. I just want to find that I quit in time and will be able to see my kids grow old.

But I cant stop obsessing..and to make matters worse--I dont have insurance..cant afford it because my husband makes too much money---yep;;the good old government wants me to pay 800./month...Im goin to dr for 80. dollars--endo may cost up to 10,000. but so would my deductables..so whatever. But this is causing more anxiety..I keep thinking its cancer..
Avatar f tn i have groin pain and a slight presence in my chest - could be reflux or heartburn. i am worried brcause i have had it for a while with mild lump in throat. non smoker. any information would be helpful.
Avatar f tn I am a white 34 year old female, non-smoker/never smoked a day in my life, and rarely drink. I went to the ER Friday evening/Saturday morning because I had chest, arm, and back pain. They drew blood, did an ekg, and an xray. They came back normal, and diagnosed me with GERD and torn muscles in my upper back, and muscle strain in my elbows. I believe I've had GERD for most or all of my life, but without the heartburn. I never realized what I had.
Avatar m tn I dont have difficulty breathing or any other syptoms I can think of. I havent suffered heartburn in the past but I have had the same throat feelings in the past,,,sometimes the morning after a few beers. Usually a glass of water sets it right. My concern is,,the symptoms of Gerd and cancer of the esophagus seem the same. Ive been researching online and see that gerd is a very common complaint but the idea of cancer of the esophagus is worrying me as the prognossis is so poor.

Avatar m tn i have also had some heartburn, so i wonder if these could be the symptoms of gerd. i am seeing an ent, he checked my throat and didn't see any growths and is going to have an mri done on me. in the meantime i am quite frightened, especially of throat cancer, has anyone had the same symptoms? i am beside myself with fear.
Avatar f tn About 7 months ago, I was eating a piece of brisket, and when I swallowed it would not go down. I almost had to have someone do the heimlick to get the brisket out of my throat. After continued swallowing with no effect, I tried to drink water with no help the water came up. After what seemed forever and pulling at the brisket with my fingers, I finally swallowed it. There was some bleeding due to trauma of trying to get it out of my throat.
Avatar f tn They said I had acid reflux. So I dealt with it. My dad got stomach cancer and always had stomach problems and acid reflux. When I went to his house before he died I discovered he was taking Levoxyl. I always felt like when I took the pill it was burning all the way down my esophagus, I also had terrible burning in my throat that I could hear at night. I quit taking it that day! I went to my doctor and he said I was crazy.
Avatar f tn Essentially I have had throat pain for an extended period of time. It's a minor pain when swallowing but noticeable; further more it's tender to the touch when pressed. When I press my finger and apply the same amount of pressure to the left side of my throat it isn't tender. Also note I've chewed tobacco for 7yrs. And have to take Zantac heartburn pills twice daily or else my day and night will be torture with heart burn.
Avatar f tn would a small lump feeling in throat that comes and goes be lung cancer. I am a nervous wreck. My Dr said it could be that,,,even though I also have acid reflux, hiatal hernia..he said its a small chance but i have high anxiety.
Avatar n tn Do you normally have a lot of heartburn? The reason I ask is that I had heartburn all the time and got the same feeling in my throat that you describe. I had an endoscopy and they found I had an esophageal stricture. He stretched it while he was in there. It felt like I had a lump in my throat all the time and my chest hurt through to my back. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn You also used to have a habit that is known to dull (burn) the nerves, cause damage to your throat, and cause heartburn, and now that your throat is healing, you feel the heartburn. The acid went all the way up to your tongue and caused all the thick mucus, raw feeling surfaces. This may indicate a condition known as LPRD (related to GERD). Recommendation: stop eating peppermints. In fact, try following a GERD diet now that you've stopped smoking. Your body will need time to heal.
678297 tn?1226546462 Do you have any indigestion or heartburn? Any other symptoms going on in your mouth? I had a sore throat for a couple months and a feeling of a lump in my throat with difficulty swallowing. Turned out to be acid reflux. Not sure if that's what you have, but thought I'd mention.
Avatar f tn She says may be from GERD, but I only get acid reflux once or twice a year, though when I do it is up into the mouth, no heartburn. Is there any significant chance that this may be GERD or simple ulcer in my throat or should I try to prepare for a finding of supraglottal cancer?
Avatar f tn It can also be caused if your salivary glands, which are the glands that keep your mouth, tongue and throat moist, are not working well and this allows your throat to become very dry. It is not enough for the doctor to examine your throat, just by looking in your mouth. You should see an ENT specialist who can use an instrument called a fiberoptic laryngoscope to examine all areas of your nose and throat. This exam would be important to both find the cause and to give you peace of mind.
4364093 tn?1365869659 Oh my gosh!! It just wont let up. This whole pregnancy I've had the worst heartburn. Before I was pregnant I never ever had it. But its so bad that its waking me up in the morning. Anybody else dealing with the same thing??
Avatar m tn s ridiculous to go to the doctor for burping and clearing throat. He says that sometimes he clears his throat out of habit as well. Please help me!! Should I be concerned? Also, what is "excessive burping"? He burps a good 20 times a day. To me this seems like a lot since it's rare for me to even burp once a day! I know this may be a silly question, but I keep finding things online that worry me.
Avatar f tn thyroid nodules can cause this problem, and so can a thyroid goitre, all benign, so can thyroid cancer, so can throat cancer, and so can just plain ol muscle spasm... the most common is muscle spasm under stress and dehydration also lack of magnesium.. hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I am a 47 year old woman who has had symptoms for a couple of years (hoarseness, lump in throat, sometimes dry cough, etc.). I know that I have a nodule on my vocal chords as well as 2 nodules (one in each lobe) in my thyroid. The thyroid nodules are approximately 3 mm each. According to the ultrasound reports (I had one recently and also one three years ago), my thyroid gland is not enlarged and the nodules haven't changed significantly.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am a 28 year old female and a smoker. Off and on I get a feeling of something stuck in my throat when theres really nothing there. The doctor said I had anxiety but also scoped my throat last summer and said I do have acid reflux. I don't really get heartburn but I do get stabbing pains in my throat that spread to my chest and drinking water usually helps.
