Dr. David :

I am not sure why she is having these symptoms.

Dr. David :

she should see her doctor and get an examination of her throat

Dr. David :

but you have already seen your GP

Dr. David :

and had endoscopy.

She had through different scan, x ray, finally computer tomography show up that she has stomachs tumour which was upperpart of stomach and in and around esophagus.

Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

but you have had endoscopy which did not show tumor.

Customer:

 


in Nov 2013 all results came through, and 9.02.14 she passed away.

Dr. David :

I am sorry about your loss.

Customer:

 


These illness was so quick, really I am been still shocked about her .Still I do not knowwhat wrong with me

Dr. David :

well, you said that you have excessive anxiety since returning from your holiday.

Customer:

I wouldn't say like that, because I wasn't awere about her conditions until 25.12.2014, because she never told none of relative s including me and brother.Everyone time she went to see her doctors by herself.We were always sitting behind the doors.

Dr. David :

did your throat symptoms start after this?

Customer:

 


But last two week my throat is more sensitive as before.

Dr. David :

you could be having acid reflux

Dr. David :

if you have been drinking alcohol or eating spicy foods or fatty foods, this can cause worse acid reflux.

In February I have in two days I hospital, had endocope. Nothing wrong.

Customer:

 


I don't drink almost at all.Only during last two months I was drinking I mouth ful cognac every morning before meal.

Dr. David :

stop drinking cognac in the morning.

Dr. David :

talk to your doctor about medication to calm down stomach acid.

Dr. David :

and see if that helps.

I have not drinking cognac more 3 weeks.And when I did it, I have drinking only 1.2 litre in 5 weeks period. To treat my throat, what was helpful bit

Dr. David :

that is not a good idea to use alcohol to treat your throat.

Dr. David :

you could still have stomach acid reflux.

Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

bad chronic sinusitis.

Dr. David :

have you tried steroid nasal sprays?

Customer:

no, usually only tablets is good for me, no spray. I don't complain to much about runny nose, while it is not very bad, just little bit when I running or walking outside.

Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

well this runny nose can definitely irritate the throat and cause swelling and inflammation in your throat.

Customer:

Do I need to do computer tomography

Dr. David :

I don't think so.

you can get one, but I bet it will be normal.
