Hello. About 3-1/2 years ago, I swallowed a very sharp object in my food. It was lodged in my throat for 2+ days and it was hard to speak. Then my throat muscles convulsed and I felt it drop down (very painful). Within days I had a plethora of strange symptoms. At first I had stabbing, voodoo like pains. My intestines would spasm all night. My belly felt sunburned and would hurt with motion. I even felt something sharp scratching at my skin, but from the inside (just under ribs on left side)!! Now I still get wet sensations, burning and a lot of gurgling noise in the exact same spot. I also have had annoying anal leakage and primarily liquid bowel movements for 3 years.
I have been dealing with this for years. My gastro doc did an endsoscopy found evidence of Barretts. I did have frequent heartburn about 5 years ago, but now is very rare (once in 2 months). He gave me prilosec, tried pro-biotics etc. None have helped, actually worsened symptoms. Any thoughts? Should I just learn to deal with the symptoms?View Thread
