I've read so many things that benzos make your LES weak..i dont even know if its true or whats causing all this. I am having so much trouble getting off it though. im on .5mg and i know thats a small dose. I can skip three days, but then i feel like i need one. I get these horrible headaches if i dont take it. Do you think its more mental then anything since its such a small dose...or should i just wait until i really find out whats causing all of my problems. I seem to have different symptons then the typical LPR person. I dont really have a chronic cough.its usually just a few obnoxious ones after i eat to get the mucous and liquid out. I only really have a sore and dry throat when i wake up. I regurgitate my food...and i do have that lump feeling in my throat. I get chills too but im wondering if thats from the PPi's. MY mom seems to think my gallbladder is causing all of this...is that possible...could your gallbladder cause lpr/gerd symptons. I know im writing a lot of posts..this is just the only place i can get it all out. thanks for your advice/input in advance.
