I feel fine. I only have a sore throat. I have some chest/throat tightness but breathing fine (97 oxygen). I have not had a nightly eposide in 2 nights so I thought I could wait for the scheduled endoscopy in 10 days. Not sure if what to do. Can the GI properly treat this issue? I read about ENT doctors. I have a pulmonary dtr but he did not pick up on this but said to see GI dtr and allergy/asthma dtr said to see GI too but they both had a CT scan they were reading as well. Anyways, I am confused on what to do.
Thank you Karen, for the information,
If you feel increasing difficulty in breathing, then you need to call 911 or go to ER.
As the spasm is subsiding & the breathing is easier in last 2 nights, then you can wait for endoscopy in 10 days.
Your oxygen saturation is also good.
You are right that consulting ENT doctor is also an option.
But GI doctor can look for reflux too.
I hope he will be able to diagnose it.
I will be happy to assist, if you need any further clarification.
