Philip, yeah they doubled me up too, I was on 20mg til Feb, with no relief from throat stuff, so ENT in his wisdom told me to take 2 per day instead. Of course, because I am no better, they think I'm either exaggerating, stressed, it's my job causing my throat problems, or the GERD isn't responding to treatment. No one is really listening, and I am still not convinced anyone has the answer. They're trying to encourage me to have a lap fundo, but I don't feel they have tried everything else yet. For a start they have only tried one type of PPI, and no one has actually said out loud that GERD is causing the throat things. They talk a lot to each other, not very much to me.
Thanks re: my name, my son used to watch me play Link to the Past and called all the baddies "Zelda Goblins" Let's play zeldagoblins mum! I thought it was cute, so I kept it hehehe
