When i was googling my symptoms etc i can across this site and a thread, i was about to post a reply and i realised the date, 2006. :D so i just started a new thread. Thats probably why some old threads get dragged up.

Puggy,  You are absolutely right :-) .  You get the blue ribbon today.
I will usually start a new thread for the new member but I don't always catch them.  That is why I will bump up this thead from time to time.
 
Thank you for your help.

I have been experiencing gerd/acid reflux since New Year's Day.  Long story short, went to doctor after I started prilosec, was having wheezing (was from my asthma), said continue two weeks, if it returns need to do testing.  After stopping prilosec, had steak and immediately had it return.  Back on prilosec, got better, had wine and popcorn one night, went to bed, woke up returned.  Switched to previcid, did work better, however, not 100%.  Went for an ultra sound, gallbladder, liver, etc., all ok, went for pelvic ultra, awaiting those results.  Cancelled the upper GI (basically I am a baby) but symptoms are better.  However, I look 5 months pregnant.  My stomach is bloating so much.  Had asian food last night, and now today I feel the food caught in my throat.  Does anyone know how to get rid of this bloat?  I am drinking herbal tea today but feel I need to do something else.  I know the diet has to change, but I do drink wine and coffee, that is a staple in my life.  I need to eliminate fatty foods.  Any suggestions?

Wow land of oz..I really think you need to get upper g.i. and quite possibly a colonoscopy..something is not right with all this bloating. I have Crohns desease and do not want to scare yu but only time I had a "bloat" was when I had a g.i. bleed! Which is very dangerous, it may be nothing but for peace of mind, get the test done!

Why are you bumping it when you can just as easily sticky the post? That seems like it would make more sense..?
