Hi Presious, you've got to get a handle on the stress thing. It is the worse thing for GERD. Well besides the soda and other foods we are not supposed to have. Don't worry about
things you can't change. Just do the best you can. Go soak in the tub and relax. I find that always helps me. I will definitly have to get some of the DGL to try. I used to take alot more prescript
ion pills in my 20's and 30's when my UC was active. At one point it was 21 pills a day. Now I just have my stomach meds Nexium, pepcid, sucralfate, gaviscon and then the plavix for my heart. I occasionaly take a pain pill for my back. Today I took it for my tail bone instead. I had a doc that told me I had fibromyalgia but I think it was just bursitis in my shoulder and the disc in my lower back. I've since met people with fibro and I don not have the pain they have all over. I think I had so many other problems that really needed his attention that he just wanted to give me a quick answer to shut me up. Well I have a bunch of other things to do tonight. Talk to you later. Barb
