I have had a chronic sore throat,but it has been for about a year now.It got to the point where even oxycodone didnt really help & then I got scared.They did find severe candida esophagitis...the yeast infection in the esophagus..& they treated me,but it has only helped a little.I have also been treated for acid reflux with 3 diff meds for about 3 mos..it helps a little......ANy suggestions anyone has would be so much appreciated....I am in a lot of pain & my ENT doctor & gastroenterologist & family doctor are somewhat at a loss & I am now being treated for depression & on disability from work & terrrified that I will lose my job,b/c I'm a single mother.My family doctor now wants me to get tested for hiv & diabetes & some other things.....I AM SO DESPERATE! I'm now on doc's orders not to talk & this is affecting my life so much,HELP?
