Can anyone point me in the direction of information about having Reflux if you are undertreated for Hypothyroidism please. My son has just spent four days in Hospital after getting a piece of meat stuck in his oesophagus. They intubated him and pushed it through and took a couple of biopsies, with the result that they have said there is inflammation in the oesophagus and have put him on the favourite Omeprazole. The only doctor I saw did not want to know about being undertreated for hypothyroidism and could only refer me back to my GP (no help there). He is to see a Gastrologist, who I am frightened may want to operate. My elder son has recently had this operation (but refuses to consider he may have Thyroid problems, even though he has already had Kidney Stones. My younger son has special needs, but My elder son is supposedly an intelligent male (?), so I will just have to hope that he soon sees sense, but I must fight for my younger son as I'm the only one who can. My husband thinks that all doctors are 'Gods' and I know 'nothing'. Any help re reliable information would be gratefully accepted. Janet.
