I have had some issues with my esophagus for the past 7 1/2 months. I had recently got diagnosed with Crohn’s and finally got some medicine for it. I had been dealing with GI issues for 3 years. They put me on Protonix, Pepcid twice a day; and Carafate in January of last year because they thought that would help with the GI issues and pain in my right side.
In August they went to do a EGD and they couldn’t because my esophagus was too narrow. I went for a swallow test and it showed a hernia and an Esophageal web. Well since then I have had 4 dilations and now it’s hard to swallow even liquids sometimes. I have also started having excessive saliva in my mouth.
Has anyone ever been through this? I have an appointment at the Mayo Clinic in April but I’m just afraid that it’s going to be like my other appointments and they find nothing wrong.
