Hello I am so glad I found this group of people sharing their stories. Over 4 months ago I started having this horrific pain It has stopped me from eating and I have been given sooo many different drugs that didn't even begin to touch the pain It truly does feel like a rooter-reuter along with a burning fire that shoots right up my throat and to the point the food i eat sometimes comes up that far.
I have been scoped everywhere and they say no acid reflux was found. The last place I have recently been is a Hospital in Baltimore and they feel it is nerve entrapment or damage and they have been giving me a drug that is to work as a nerve blocker.. I thought at first is was helping but now it seems the pain is winning even though I am still taking the drug protriptyline This is new approach for me So far possibly a bit of help but not convinced yet
