Since January of 2009 I have had much trouble sleeping. Felt colder than normal and had a lot of chest, neck and back burning and pain. I have never had significant health problems besides hayfever/allergies. I had an Upper Endoscopy done in March and they found I had erosions in my esophagus and reflux. I was at that time told to up my ompeprazole to 40 mg twice a day. A month and half went by..I started to develop tons of mucus/phlegm in my throat..saw an ENT who told me to try Nexium @ 20 mg twice a day which I am doing. Still hardly any relief and trouble swallowing seems to have gotten worse. I went to another Gastro doctor as I've been unsatisfied with mine and he has scheduled me for another Endoscopy and this time he will be doing a biopsy unlike the other Gastro doctor who didn't. The new Gastro thinks I may have eosinophilic esophagitis. My question is though can this really cause all these things. Sidenote is I also have neck pain, just found I had disc protrusions and scholiosis and arthritis in my neck. Just wondering why I feel so cold, have burning pain. I have lost 23 pounds since Feb. and have to take Ambien CR to fall asleep now.
Anyone have any ideas?
