What are your symptoms, how did they confirm it and what type of treatment was prescribed? Are you better?
also what type of doctor is treating you?
I don't have a definitive diagnosis. they "think" it's what I have. A dermatologist has put me on steroids. I was having difficulty and pain swallowing so a GI doctor stretched my throat and I'm taking antacids so I really don't have any symptoms right now. I'm not sure I should stay on the steroids because they are so awful. I don't know what kind of doctor to go to.

I was diagnosed over a year ago by my specialist. I battled with swallowing, everything I ate felt like it was going down the wrong way and the burning sensation was felt all the way down my back. Some times my food made me choke and caused me to panic. I had reflux in the middle of the night and also woke up and had to sit up for the sensation to go away. My doctor carried out a number of tests, swallowing test where you carry around a computer to monitor the swallowing actions. Blood tests, bio-opsy, scopes, etc. I now take Entocord and Pariet, which has been a great help. I also go for annual scopes to ensure all is well.

I have the same symptoms and my Dr. sent me for a gastroscope, where they found the lichen planus in my esophagus. I'm seeing a gastroenterologist who has stretched my throat about 3 times now, about a year apart. I am also on an oral budesonide syrup, which I've gotten down to every 2nd or 3rd day. I still have to take very small bites and eat very slowly. I really don't like the stretching business since the IV in my hand hurts a lot. I'm 58 years old, female. Nice to know I'm not the only one. I live in Alberta Canada
