Foam in the esophagus

9 posts in this topic

Has anyone had this? I've had a couple of yeast infections in my esophagus before and I know I've had the foam before, but never thought about it being related. The foam can come up with effort, like when you force a burp. I'm going to call my GI today.

 

I want to get this cleared up before I leave for a cruise on the 17th. I'm going with my best girlfriend from high school. We are both 54 and have never taken a trip together. She lives in Indiana where we grew up and I'm in Georgia, so we don't see each other often. So we decided to leave the husbands home and take a fun trip and go horseback riding like we did when we were 15, only this time were are riding in the Caribbean Islands instead of her back yard.

Margaret,

Come along! The more the merrier! I miss cruising, I used to go often. That was my life, planning and selling cruises, before I became ill. I wasn't just a travel agent I was a Master Cruise Counsellor. It was one of the proudest achievements in my life.

 

I saw my GI this afternoon and he has given me a prescription for Nystatin to swish and swallow to kill the yeast.

Cheryle:

Did the GI doctor tell you if the foam was realted to the yeast infection?

Glad you got something for the yeast ~ hope that clears it up.

Much love,

Nina,

 

I'm trying to remember if he actually said it or not. I first told him of the sensations 'pressure' -like feeling I was having again. It's like I had before, the first time I was diagnosed is when I had an endoscopy. Then, I when I mentioned the foam, he immediately wrote out the prescription.

 

I have sent a link in for posting on the main site, which I understand they will post tomorrow. It is a report with photos on Scleroderma patients and foam from yeast.

 

Let me know what you think about it.

Hi Cheryle,

 

I have had the yeast problems and it hit my esophagus all the way down . It was so painful in my mouth and throat. And yes, there was foam once in awhile. Now I have a problem with the yeast on the lips and mouth more. The doctor has found to treat it aggressively with Diflucan, and it works. I hope you get relief soon. I know it is not a fun thing to deal with.
