Hello. I have a lot of health issues, so I have posted in different areas. I feel very much on the edge lately. I don’t know if I am really losing my mind or if it is the effects of a lot of stress. Thanks.

Wed, Mar 6 4:31pm · Botox injection for swallowing issues - Debating Surgery in Digestive Health
I haven’t posted in awhile. I have a swallowing problem which is getting worse. I suppose the next step is a feeding tube but I am not sure I want that. I have had botox in my esaphagus which made things worse. I have had a heart pacemaker put in that had to be redone, and I have had cataract surgery and am still having eye problems. So I am not sure of any more surgeries of any kind. I am 77 so maybe it is just time to let go.
I truly pray for help for your daughter. It must be so frustrating, especially at her age. I had cataract surgery 2years ago and recently had an experience of seeing different patterns – net on the walls, snowing in my livingroom, etc. was told it was floaters. I finally found a doctor who lasered buildip from my artificial lens. That ey was perfect but now the other eye is very blurry. I don’t have an apt till the end of Feb. i know this is not your daughter’s problem. I wish it were because it is easy to fix. I have ocular migraines several times a day. I know none of this helps but i do understand what all of you are going through. I will keep her in prayer.
Thank you. I will check out those links. They sound helpful. I have had a sleep study. The first one my heart rate fell to 20 and I now have a pacemaker. I redid the study and was told I don’t have apnea. Thank you so much. I will give an update.
Thank you for your reply. I will check out the discussions you mentioned. Yes, I have had side effects with the meds. I think my trouble breathing comes from the phlegm. I don’t know if that is alergies or if it has to do with GERD. I have read acid can cause the phlegm. Thank you for your help.
I haven’t posted in awhile, dealing with some changes. I have an apt with a psychologist the 30th. I may cancel. I am having a lot of anxiety and depression but I can’t take those medications. I have tried many of them. So it is just whatever talking would help. I can’t sleep, I wake up every hour or so. I often wake up with a lot of phlegm in my throat and trouble breathing. Sometimes I have very bad dreams. I don’t know if a psychologist would be of any help or if I should just deal with it on my own. Thanks for any suggestions.
