PPI issues, and illness

Posted by hgarm @hgarm, Mon, Feb 11 7:03am

I have been having pretty bad issues lately where I have been severely Ill. I have had to go to the ER twice in a week this week because I have been so sick and as usual they don't help very much so I was sent home still with no answers and feeling just as sick as I have been. I have an appointment with a GI doctor on Monday so I just have to make it through the week but every day seems to worse than the day before.
I have been on a PPI since December and I found that when I take it I begin to get a sensation of a lump in my throat when I swallow. This only happens after I take the PPI and it goes away while I sleep over night. Has anyone experienced this and if so how did you get rid of it? It always feels like something is stuck in my throat and it makes swallowing hard but if I don't take it I get an awful burning in my chest.
I was also told the PPI would help with the burping but it has not helped with that at all because I am still burping all the time.

Have them biopsy for eosinophilic esophagitis
