I am currently in Negros Oriental but actually working in Cebu.
Sure I will. Two of my siblings had their gallbladder removed already. My sister can identify what im going through but she's in Bohol right now assigned as a social worker. My mama also has the same "sickness". My sister and I just communicate through text. Since Im now home for a vacation, may mama has been introducing me to a lot of herbal medicine. From what province are you from in the Philippines?
do you have allergies also? GERD and allergies are cousins i think and post nasal drip as well. hehehehe. My GI has prescribed me Zanor for my anxiety attacks. I was really scared at first, good thing i came across of this forum and it has opened my eyes to a lot of things about GERD.
The feeling of your throat closing is just a "feeling". I have been to the ER 3X because of that feeling. I thought i was having an allergic attack after having eggs for breakfast and coffee and beef strips (c/o Jollibee..hehehe). I am never allergic to eggs! Im only allergic to squid, shrimps, crabs. I can even eat green mangoes and bagoong. It was just a panic attack but the throat discomfort didnt go away and its been 3 weeks now.
Especially if you're from the province, there are limited data about GERD. My cousins are even suggesting I go and see and "albularyo" (faith healer or a "medicine man".) The reason perhaps is because most if not all of those with GERD also experience panic attacks/anxiety attacks. My cousin's husband got well after seeing an "albularyo". The treatment comprised of some "oil" being rubbed on the stomach and a list of foods to be avoided. The price asked back then, about two years ago was 163.00 US dollars in one visit.
The only setback i have is insomnia. I plan to buy the wedge pillow so that my head will be elevated when i go to sleep.
- i think im pre-menopausal also; im hypertensive; asthmatic and got allergic rhinitis and perennial sinusitis.
