AFter having chest pains RIGHT before vacation, I decided to go anyway and, eating a very restricted diet, had absolutely no symptoms at all. The longest I have gone in a while. I basically ate raisin bran, wheat thins, a cliff bar and yogurt and that's it, except for a few saltines in the evening, nothing after about 6:45pm. I had energy to spare and felt great.
Before I left I had been given cardizem (sp?) to relax my esophagus but did not take it, just the prevasid.
now that I am home, no chest pains but esophageal pain again, particularly after eating green beans.
Guess I'll just have to stay on vacation!!
