Hello Everyone. So, I have been struggling for the last year with difficulty swallowing. I was sent to gastro doctors and did the barriun swallow test and all they could find was a hernia. I felt like I was going crazy because I kept saying my throat a d they would blame it on acid reflex. Well in March of this year I went to the doctor for what I thought was strep. She didn’t swab me just said I can still get strep without having my tonsils. I took the meds and didn’t get much relief. I went back the first week of May with the same pain on one side and what looked like strep. So my doctor swabbed. The test came back negative so she sent me to the ENT that day to get an abcess drained. Saw the ent, he ordered me a CT and wouldnt touch this abcess like thing in my throat, unless he was for sure it was a peritonsillar abcess ( but I don’t have tonsils!). Anyways, CT showed eagles clear as day, so I’m taking muscle relaxers ( I hate and refuse to take) and steriods rounds which make my heart race. I did my MRI this past week and it came back abnormal on the left side ( painful side with the reoccurring random lump). So, I found this site and I am excited because I have no clue what to do! I see a specialist in 2 weeks that is said to be more knowledgeable of eagles and this lump. I’m so worried because I have my CT and MRI but my doctor is being so vague! I am anxious about what is to come. We just sold our home and we are supposed to be moving out of state and the kiddos are about to be out of school.
Anyone have a random mass like thing that popped up in your mouth that had ulcerations on it? Black and White circles and so very painful. Steriods help it go down but it comes right back! Wondering if this is eagles related orrr something else going on. Willing to post scans for insight.
