Well, I am not sure what this column is for but I would like to explain my situation: I seem to have had problems with what I don't really know. But my Mom gave me something which would seem like for gas.
Then I got married, would go to be with nothing bothering me and then I would start smothering. I would get up, take some of this stuff, make me belch and get to feeling better, once though that didn't help, I am not sure I even took any of this stuff. I ended up going to the ER and they gave me a nerve shot, then I was put on nerve medicine, Valium. I would only take one when I really needed one, yeah, it relaxed me, but also made me feel a little light. Then I finally quit.
I finally started drinking 7-up to make me belch. Then in 95 I was diagnosed with acid reflux, never had heard of it, put on Zantac, then over the counter Zantac 75 came out and then it wasn't helping, so they put me on Protonix. Then at one time I was put on Aciphex. Must have been my eating habits, I really got bad and nothing would help, I had blood work, x-rays, urine test, ultrasound, colon test, another blood test, everything fine, except I have bubbles on my colon, no popcorn,nuts,seeds.
I found out I was not lactose intolent, but found out that milk and ice cream is not on the list of foods to eat if you have acid reflux. My belly hurt and my back, the around 3wks ago, my throat and mouth started burning, this is what happened when I was first diagnosed with acid reflux. My belly and back had quit bothering me when my throat and mouth started. I am trying to eat more of what it says is ok to eat if you have acid reflux.
The only thing is my throat is dry and feels a little raw or such. I have an appointment the 8th of next month for the scope test down my throat. It isn't as bad, but I do want to make sure everything is ok. I am just hoping it will go back to feeling normal. I was just glad to find out there are other people out there with the same problem. I just wish no one had this. I am asking God for His healing of this.
