Hello - I'm new to this forum. I am up at 3:30 with the burning in my throat, though it has gotten under control a bit with meditation and biofeedback breathing. I'm about to drink throat coat tea and go to bed. Here's my questions:
1) Who can't take any of the Rx meds and why?
2) Who has natural remedies that work - I've tried Apple Cinder Vinegar which made everything worse. I can help my throat with licorice root capsules. Is there experience out there with other natural remedies such as homeopathy. Acupuncture hasn't touched it
3) Does raising the bed head 6 inches work? After 10 years of this, this is one thing I haven't tried as I share my bed
4) Biofeedback has helped me
5) Gluten free diet has helped and I've dropped 7 lbs
6) Has anyone tried weight loss and has it helped?
7) I don't want surgery, I just want this problem to go away!

I've read through the posts and have included a poll. Thanks for your feedback.

May I request that you do not use the poll feature to ask many of the same questions you have already asked in  thread?
Many of the answers are in the forum under old threads so if you use our search feature you will fine the old thread.  Very  old threads are for Read Only so do not post to them and bring them to the top. Thank you for understanding that mulitple posts re same topic by the same member  is improper use of critical forum resources.
