- Dysphagia with flomax to move kidney stones
I was experiencing extreme pain in right upper abdomen and was checked at the hospital and kidney stones were diagnosed. Flomax was prescribed in september 2014. I only took about 2 days worth after pain stopped. But then pain returned in December so i decided to continue taking flomax but i suddenly got stroke like complications so i went back to the hospital where they removed the kidney stones. But my dysphagia is still holding on today February 2 2015. I have seen an ent that said it looks fine and must be mechanical. I have a gastrologist appointment and a neurolist appointment coming up. Hopefully someone will give me an answer how to fix this. In the meantime i can not eat solids(no applesause ) i just chug water and cough it back up if it goes the wrong way. And the same with liquid fruit shakes which are all that i can tolerate. Thank God i have not developed pneumonia or other issues but the constant coughing is putting a toll on me. For anyone who wants tips on dealing with this just keep looking for anything that can help relieve your swallow function.
