I usually post on the ulcerative colitis board, i have been in a bad flare up for past 2 years and as my uc flare resolves, i am getting worse with my gerd and heartburn- i do have a gi appt next week-
I have LA grade A espohagitis, gerd. Recently its been bad- burning in my throat all the time, as soon as i wake up in the am, throughout the day, etc. Right now I am not taking any meds for but I know I need to. what is the best one to start with?
Also, i have had to alter my diet for uc, anything diet wise i should know about?
anything natural that works? i think i remember reading about aloe vera juice??
also, i drink green tea a few cups a day, could this be aggravating it?
what is a soothing tea i can switch to?
any help appreciated
