For about 3 years now I have been suffering from a bubbles stuck in my chest and throat. I get to the point that I cant eat, my mouth starts filling up with water, and then I throw up when I'm throwing up its stomach acid then I let out this horrific burt and then the paid is done and the bubble is gone. This can happen over several times ina day or night and I never know when it's over till its over. I can't eat bread red meat or really some time anything will start the air bubbles and then I cant swallow the rest of my meal regardless of what it is. For days after I have to fight not eating my stomach swollen with gas I assume and the pain in my throat like I was punched. I have to tell you this sucks I have gone and had an upper GI done and they found just ulcers which the doc told me couldn't cause what I am experiencing. Then I did a digestion test where I ate radioactive oatmeal and laid under a camera for 3 hours watching the food digest. Again nothing. After countless visits drinking boost to keep from starving to death I was referred to another doc to have more test run.
I don't know about anyone else but I don't have an endless supply of money for co-pays to be told we don't know what it is. My galbladder doesnt have high levels so they passed that off as well. But this comes and goes. It will last weeks when the attack (i call it) comes on and then I'm fine for a little while.
It takes every ounce of energy I have to get up and go to work the next day from being up all night throwing up. Then not to have the nutrition in my body I have NO energy either.
Someone out there HELP!!!! My email is deepipkin@cox.net
