SHARON'S PERSONAL STORY

December 9, 2019 Other FGIMD

I had GERD, dysmotility and dysphagia (difficulty swallowing). This was relieved by having my root canal teeth taken out. Each root canal tooth has about 5 kn of tubules which can be infected.

 I was diagnosed with Gerd about six years ago after being scoped. Since then my discomfort is pretty much 24/7  with no relief. For some reason the drugs that I’ve tried do not work on me. I have learned to live with it for the most part but tend to have flareups that are getting worse and worse and are making me miserable. Interestingly enough this all began after I started to

I started having terrible pain in my chest/abdominal area, especially after eating certain foods and upon waking up. Since GERD runs in my family I assumed I had GERD and so I started taking medications that I bought at the drugstore.
