When I was little, I could NOT tolerate pain, AT ALL. My mom has always said ” I dont know how your going to have a baby!” haha As I have gotten older, It’s gotten a lot better. Well Monday morning around 3 AM, I woke up to a horrible pain right under my breast bone. It was this horrible pinching feeling that would come and go in 30 sec intervals and there was no way I could tolerate it. So I jumped out of bed and took some heartburn medicine and went back to bed… WELL I woke up at 8am with the same feeling but it was in my back now too. So like always, I go to web md (big mistake) and see what some sort of problem I have…. An Ulcer in my esophagus WHAT?!? Cancer in my esophagus OMG! … Cue Tara freaking out! SO I called my grandma and she told me it could be my gallbladder and that I need to go to the doctor asap. Oh my goodness, I was about to pass out at this point. So I call my mom and she thinks I need to see a doctor too. So I made an appt with my doc for Tuesday since I couldn’t get in Monday. Yesterday morning I woke up with the same pain and it just seemed to stick around ALL morning. I couldn’t even drink water without feeling a burning sensation down my chest. Before I went to the doctor I had already self diagnosed myself and thought I was gonna have to have some type of surgery. The doctor asked me a bunch of questions and came to the conclusion that I have esophagitis. Basically, my esophagus has been getting “acid baths” from acid reflux, for the past two days and it is completely raw/eroded. He said that some people just have acid reflux and it can trigger at any time. So I am on medication for 3 weeks and it will not be healed for three weeks. I am grateful that it is not something a lot worse!
