My doc tells me that I have GERD, or rather he said.. yep, sounds like GERD to me..lol. What I wonder is.. sometimes I have issues with it and sometimes I do not. I have eaten pizza without a problem one day, then the next day eat cheese and crackers and get such chest pain that I think I'm dying. I've even eaten a bit of chili before and it did not bother me. Some day's I can eat at McDonalds with my kids and be perfectly fine, then a week later eat the exact same thing there, and whammo... within ten minutes I feel it crawling back up.
Is it normal to play the odds like this? I thought Acid Reflux disease was always there unless you got it treated? Could this be a hiatal hernia that becomes worse sometimes and that's when I get symptoms?
This is really driving me crazy... I never know what will set it off, and when or where.
When you have a handful of lemons, you have a choice. Suck on them, and be bitter.... or stomp on them and add sugar and enjoy them.
I have no medical training, any medical opinions expressed in my posts are just that....opinions.
