Hello, For the last 4 years I have had a burning pain in my throat. It’s there all day, it’s like I drink a glass of boiling water everyday, that burning pain you get when you first burn yourself. What triggers it? Food, drink and breathing any strong odor (chemicals, deodorants, fragrances,etc…).THE ONLY THING THAT DULLS THE PAIN IS WHEN I’M WEARING A MASK. It’s like the diffusion of the air helps. Plus it keeps strong odors out or mutes them. I do have esophageal spasms, I have had achalasia surgery recently, which seems to have done more harm than good. I try to control the spasms with nifedipine. Nothing seems to help. I have been to the Cleveland Clinic and had neuropathy ijections in my neck, my tonsils removed, nothing seems to help and no one can find a source of the pain. I am looking into food allergies next and possibly hormonal testing as I am a 48 year old female and have been going through menopause. Does anyone have this or have any other ideas? This has gotten so bad that I have anxiety attacks and I can only think how much longer can I live with this? People should not be in pain this long.
