Hey everyone,
I'm doing some research trying to figure out why there's such a sudden increase in GERD, and such atypical symptoms like LPR have risen. I believe if we can get to the root of the problem we can solve it instead of suppressing symptoms. Please take some time out to answer some questions, it'll help me out and maybe it can help everyone out including you. I know it's long, but please answer all questions.
Did you GERD develop gradually or did it develop all of a sudden?
Did you GERD occur at a time of high stress?
Has that high stress been resolved and not your acid reflux?
If yes to the above question, were your eating habits any different than what they would usually be?
Has that high stress been resolved and not your acid reflux?
From 1-10, what is the amount of use of NSAID's (ie. Advil, Aleve) in your life.
From 1-10, have you used cortisteroids or any type of steroid, (i.e. asthma meds, skin products)?
What has your diet been like (ie.e fatty, salty, acidic, alkaline.)?
Did or does your diet consist of a lot of meat, specifically bacon, pork, sausage?
Anti-biotic use around or before time of acid reflux, what kind Amoxicilyn, Zithromax, Cipro?
Did other weird symptoms start along with your acid reflux? (i.e. skin conditions, peeling lips, conjunctivitus)
Is there an unresovled situation or issue that can be considered stressing or anxiety inducing in your life that you have been trying to avoid or ignoring?
Is it possible there something that may be stressing you out, even if you're not aware ot it, please reflect.
Are you questioning the purpose of your life?
Does your symtoms change? Throat to chest, chest to throat, throat to tongue,
Anxious because sometimes you're not sure if you have symtoms or not?
Your level of anxiety during symptoms from 1-10 10 being highest?
where do you live?
what is your occupation and where you work?
