Thanks everyone for your advice and support.
I tried sleeping with an elevated headrest over the years and unfortunately I'm not able to do it. Due to my neck and back injury on top of my fibro, I'm only able to lay on my sides and with the added pressure of having my shoulder elevated it caused much added pressure and pain.
Thanks for suggesting the aloe vera juice, smurfyshadow. I'm going to give that a try. Is it expensive?
If the aloe doesn't work for me, do I need to see my gastronologist about
a medication or would seeing a general practioner be good enough? Both doctors are new so they haven't prescribed a gerd med for me before.
Now speaking of asthma, I'm going to talk with my b/f this morning about
closing the vents between the basement and the house. He likes to keep his basement cooled in the summer and heated in the winter. Trouble is he has woodworking equipment in the basement (which he unfortunately hasn't been able to use since I've come into his life) and he has exposed insulation on the walls. There is a definite musty smell if I go into the basement. I heard many people with asthma also have gerd. Do you think the basement issue might be a problem for me?
Fibromyalgia, CFS, multiple chemical sensivity, herniated disks, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, ADD, sjorgens, sleep apnea, asthma, headaches. The only medication I take is ibuprofen at night to sleep along with my supplements for sleeping. I am on a regiment of different supplements, I eat very nutritiously, and ever since my injury years ago I have been doing prescribed stretches x2 daily.
