Hi from across the pond! I've been having trouble swallowing for past month! I thought my allergies or Sjogrens? Or combination of both! Now it's to a point I can't even swallow liquids! The food stops in my throat and sometimes if I do eat soft foods it comes bak up thru my nose! I guess I waited too long! Now it's quite crucial I go! Yesterday I took Benedryl cuz my throat was slowly closing and wheezing started! The Benedryl worked TG! The pain is excruciating and just don't go away even with strong Pain meds! If I can't get a doc appt today I must go to hospital! I read up on Sjogrens and it says this can happen along with Lymphoma! I'm sure it must be allergic reaction to a drug I've been taking all along! I had to change pharmacy due to new insurance and they gave me a different generic and am thinking it may be that! My allergy doc says I'm allergic to the tiny amount of preservatives they put in some meds! I must ask is Allergies an autoimmune thing? Just thought I'd update you! Thx for ur input as always Kerstin! The others too! I just wish anyone with Sjogrens cud put me at ease! I also looked up cancer of esophagus! I have all they symptoms! They include throat pain, can't swallow, ear pain at its maximum! I'm just very tired and if I have any major issues it'll have to be left to The Good Lord cuz I'm done with any treatments! Just a place to let loose my emotions! My troubles with swallowing started last June and now this! Why didn't they look further at that time??? I hope it's noting but some allergic reaction to some medicine I have been taking and developed an allergy to! That wud be pretty simple compared to what I'm thinking! Thx all for ur responses last post!!! Godspeed
