Hey Everyone,

I just read this article on ILS:

Any thoughts?

a big read,

but as I am resigned to my larynx being permanently damaged due to years of reflux prior to a nissen, it is an interesting read, as i suffer pretty bad from restless leg syndrome too - which my GP has no interest in, and also have some IBS symptons which i have not discussed with my GP.

interesting article ...hypothesis, one that many here agree...that there is a relationship between stress and the many ramifications of gerd. and that the 10th cranial nerve , which governs much of the gi tract, links emotion and especially stress, with gi functioning

heres a summary

the article finds evidence that there is co morbidity between irritable larynx syndrome and several other ailments including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome and migraine headaches, and this relationship suggests heightened stress and irritability of the central nervous system may be an underlying issue

im a believer

The problem, of course, gets to be which one came first. I'm older than many people here. I used to have an anxiety issue here and there with a growing family, elderly parents, retirement etc but I could always handle it until my GERD got really bad and after my GB went south and had to be removed.

The free-flowing bile in my GI tract and the loose frequent stools it produced for over 17 years became a factor in dealing with everyday life and with GERD as well. Many of the meds given to me for the bile diarrhea made my GERD symptoms worse and I had to stop them.

Losing sleep due to GERD as you get older (for anyone really) is not conducive to good health or a good outlook on your life in general.

I've heard it said that your GI tract is your "other brain" and I totally agree with that idea. Even my surgeon told me so. I just wish it were a little smarter at times.

I hope you find relief for your condition and good luck.

Hang in there.
