I started this thread, but had a problem with my cursor. I will try again.
Usually my throat does not burn. I don't throw up. I don't feel nauseous. But my life has been taken over by this condition.
I haven't slept in a bed regularly in years. This month I slept in a bed for about an hour 12 hours after I ate. I miss being in a bed. I sleep sitting up on very hard furniture.
I have cut out almost all foods on a regular basis. But I will have mult-grain bread, pasta, chicken. Sometimes I don't think about my GERD and have fried foods. But I've decided to stop that.
The healthy things I do work against me. Everything comes up into my throat, but grains my be worse than other things. I can't eat lettuce, whole wheat pasta put me in the emergency room with throat contractions, A spinach salad made me sick all night, yer I can eat pizza.
This thing invades all aspects of my life from the sleep I get to stopping most aerobics because the food comes up.
