This is the first year I have ever been alone on new years eve...i am usually friends or family or both...or out and about. I have never had a new years kiss..even though ive had boyfriends and i have daughter. weird huh? My daughter is asleep. When i am depressed chocolate or icecream usually help. But of course i cant eat those. I have followed every thing i'm supposed to do and my throat still burns. IS THERE ANY RELIEF with LPR. will i be stuck like this forever!! i hear people on these sites saying "ive had it for twenty years" i dont think i could handle that! i would go crazy. i already feel like im going crazy. not only do i have lpr..and in chronic pain but i am alone tonight and my life couldnt be more messed up. sorry guys im just so low that its kind of scaring me. My dr doesnt listen and no other drs are accepting new patients. ive tried every anti depressent there is but now im hearing that it loosens the LES. Im scared.

((((((((((((((gentle hug)))))))))))))))))

New Year's Kiss? What's that? I've never had one myself. No kids either.

I struggled for 3 years before I said I've had enough of my LPR. Before that it was managable for 7 years with tums.
Do you think you can go on your own and talk to a gastroenterologist? My insurance allowed me to see whatever doctor was on their list without referral. That was the only way I was able to get the ball rolling for me.

I didn't start going to the doctor for it until the last three years when I couldn't stop coughing and choking.

I had the 270 degree wrap done. It's loose and works for me.

Testing that is a must:
EGD (endoscopy)
Barium Swallow
Motility Study
pH test
stomach emptying test

The worse test is the motility study because I couldn't be sedated for it. You have to be wide awake to drink the liquid with the tube down your throat. Yeek! The others are a breeze.
