I am 67 UK. Been told I have his. I am in extreme pain on eating for months and PPIs made no difference. The pressure burning in chest throat back WORSE by evening. Worse on sitting down. It has affected bowels. I am have had autoimmune bloods for anti centrometre ANA and anti bodies. I am having endoscope EUS next week. I had the 24 hr manometary 6 weeks ago hence this. I had a abdomen chest CT scan though 6 weeks ago...no abnormalities...but this doesn't xray oesophagus only to chest. Do I have cancer. I am in such pain all around middle back chest throat, sometimes left shoulder. It all burns and such pressure even on tiny foods and on everything I eat.. GP thought angina and gave me tabs..nothing changed and no pain meds alleviate it. I had an endoscope last year gastritis oesophagitis hiatus hernia...discharged just take PPIs. I have had to go elsewhere for this result now all these months on. I have some weight loss and warm porridge stools when I do go. I am sure it is cancer after soo long..and am scared this time of having the endoscope..never bothered me before..this time as pain sooo bad it does. I also had pancreatititis last Boxing Day 2015...MRI showed even then nothing wrong...no gallstones as I don't have gallbladder. My gut feeling its going to be bad news...Anyone here been through similar....and who has survived if it is big C years on..with o without chemo?? Bloods 6 weeks ago were all OK again and reassuring I was told. D IGG4, all that. I am at a loss and scared.
