hi all, i am worried sick. i do have docs appt next week, but just wanted to ask if anybody could shed some light on this. i dont think i have O S just because i am on the nhs site, but I am worried. a while ago i had a persistent cough and went to docs as it was affecting me in the workplace. while there i mentioned i felt i had a little lump in my throat when i swalled and it had been like that for quite a while before the cough. she treated the cough and ignored what i said about my throat. now 2 months on, i have a permanent feeling like there is a blockage where the OS joins the stomache between the ribs. Its not painful but very uncomfortable. When I swallow anything, be it food, drink or my own saliva it feels it gets stucks where the lump feeling is. after i eat i often get the feeling of regurgitating and even when i am just at my desk at work i am getting discomfort from where the lump/blockage feeling is. At its worst when I can feel it strongly i am getting discomfort in my back. I can swallow, but always get the feeling everything is getting stuck on the way down. I am otherwise healthy, dont drink have never smoked and only have a thyroid problem for which i have been on medication for 7 years. Iam not asking anybody for a diagnosis, I JUST WANT TO KNOW IF ANYBODYS SYMPTONS WERE LIKE THIS ............i only go to docs when having a check up for the thyroid or that cough recently, as i am not confident they can be bothered with anything these days, SHOULD I INSIST ON A ENDESCOPE INVESTIGATION to be sure and for peace of mind, or am i making to much of this? Normally, nothing bothers me, but my gut feeling is this is serious, I am 55.
