I am pre diagnosed as well. The stress I’m feeling is overwhelming. My scope is this week. The swallowing problems started about two weeks ago. Painless swallowing with food dragging down under breast bone. Then things progressed quickly, now can only swallow soft food after a week and have tender sore feeling after swallowing. My whole body is gone haywire with neuropathic burning pain I can feel internally and externally. I had abdominal side flank pain for quite a while prior to the swallowing issue. You know things are really wrong when GERD doesn’t improve with diet revisions. I have had reflux for years. This was my only risk factor. If you had a scope in the last two years that’s a good indication that you are dealing with another issue. If you haven’t had long term
GERD that’s another assurance your issue is unlikely to be serious. Mayo Clinic website has good info on this issue. Good luck….
@scarlettanager, I've been thinking about you. Did you have your scope? Any update on a diagnosis?
