Hi there! I am in need of your help since doctors cannot even give me a guess. I have had trouble swallowing for 9 years now.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have had trouble swallowing for 9 years now. I have pieces of food stick to my throat every time I eat. It is worse in the winter months and easier to swallow in the summer months but it is with me all year long. I have also had bleeding gums, peeling gums, peeling lips to the point they are bruised and I do feel like my throats epithelium layer peels as well. I went to a gum specialist and she feels it looks more like an autoimmune but all my tests for autoimmune come back negative. This year I also developed a chronically inflamed stomach. The biopsies showed it was not due to any bacteria and more because the mucosa is inflamed. Prior to my stomach I was on prednisone for three months for my throat which miraculously helped my throat but we are not sure if the prednisone caused the stomach issues or not. We also did biopsies of my throat and found 6 eosinophilic cells in my throat but nothing more. I also get nerve pain in the back of my throat as well at random times.
