I had a follow up appointment in the ear nose and throat department this morning I have had a cough for 14 months had 2 chest xrays both were clear ,Last time I went he said I had a small polyp and it was stopping my sinus from draining .he put me on medication to shrink the polyp, and also something for acid reflux which had been causing ulcers on my throat. Doctor said good morning is there any improvement .I told him my acid reflux had cleared up, but cough was no better but it is no worse He then asked if I had trouble swallowing my food and I had to say I have sometimes, is it painful and do you wash it down with liquid he asked I told him I did wash it down but sometimes the liquid didn't wash it down it just comes back up,but then I said the magic words I put that down to Fibromyalga. .Ah he said you have Fibromyalga .I think you are right the muscle in your throat is going into spasm, I don't think there is anything else going on ,but would you be willing to have an endoscopy just to make sure. and the cough is rhinitis. So two more things I have to put up with.Has anyone else had either these symptoms?
