My Story Living With Eosinophilic Esophagitis

I can remember the day I started getting choked my mom would say stop eating so fast and make sure to chew your food up good. Then I would have bad chest pain. I would say I am not eating fast and I am chewing it up good MOM. Then one day I was at work when I was sixteen and had serve chest pain I thought I was having a heart attack. So my manger called my mom to come and get me. They did all kinds of test and said it was acid reflux and sent me home. I continued to have the pain so my primary doctor sent me to a GI doctor. They did all kinds of test and said it was my gallbladder. So they removed my gallbladder and said everything should be getting back to normal. But I was still getting choked and having chest pain.I got choked drinking a juice box and passed out. So they did some more test and said I had a hiatal hernia and EE. So they dilated my esophagus and sent me to allergist. They tried me on all kinds of meds but they don't help. I am twenty three now and have to have my esophagus dilated every month. I go to a new allergist tomorrow to see what the next step is to helping me.Hopefully I will find out what foods is cause this last time I was allergic to everything but potatoes.
