For over a year now I have had a sensation/noise. At first I thought that it was in my head behind my left ear. I told my doctor and she ordered a CT. Everything was fine. My blood pressure was high so she gave me a prescription. After a month or two we did a follow up. I told her that I had been having bad heartburn (and hadn't thought to tell her about it the first visit). She then switched the blood pressure medicine and prescribed Prilosec. The first week that I took Prilosec I had a horrible episode where my stomach ached so badly that I almost went to the ER. I vommitted and could barely stand up. I went back to see her and she switched my heartburn med to Nexium. This has helped a little. I still have heartburn almost every day. When I wake up in the morning I usually cannot eat anything because I feel nauseated. I have to force myself to eat by 9/10am.
The sensation/noise is my main concern. I cannot find anyone that has this happening. It seems that others describe something similar but they don't have the other symptoms. This sensation/noise now feels like it is hitting the back of my throat (may be why I hear it to the left side). It feels like little tiny bubbles and sounds like fizz or rushing/gushing noise. It is so hard to describe and nobody near me can hear it. It used to only happen in the morning. Then after a while it would do it when I walked up a step or put pressure (only with my left foot though). Now it happens all throughout the day. It worsens when I am hungry... mostly in the morning or in between meals. It does not feel like a burp/gas.
I am overweight, I drink about 6-12 cans of Diet Coke every day, I drink alcohol (2-4 drinks most nights), and I have a hard time sleeping. I am between the ages of 25-30 :)
