I have not been diagnosed. Based on a referral fro my primary care physicians, I am schedulled for an INTERVIEW with a specialist for January 17th. AT THE POINT THE REFERRAL WAS MADE, NO INFO HAD BEEN TRANSMITTED,AAS FAR AS i KNOW. SINCE THEN, i DON'T KNOW.Oops. A couple of years ago. I had a stress test based on my reports of discomfort and exhaustion in my upper body. tested normal.
Two months ago, I reported that discomfort in my back had progressed to mild pain. I also reported a cough, and belching that felt like it had to be forced.
The following month, I could not swallow more than a couple of spoonfuls of breajfast, had a bad oain uin my back, and regurgitated a few times a quantity of food and mucous. I reported this, along with hoarseness, coughin, and more back pain. This resulted in the referral. They also put me on omeprazole.
