I might try the low carb thing. I saw my PC today and he said my sore throat is from the acid not an infection and he gave me sucralfate to take for a few weeks and he switched me from prilosec to pepcid because he said it was pointless to take Nexium and prilosec as they are almost the same thing and work the same. He said it was better to attack the problem from 2 different angles versus the one. He couldn't understand why the GI doc put me on both of those instead of the 2 different kinds of GI meds. I'm beginning to wonder about
my GI doc. I think he is just sick of me and my stomach problems. Oh well I am off to try to get some quality sleep in my lazy boy. Lol. I'll take any kind of sleep
I can get at this time. Barb
