Rick - thanks for responding! Sorry if you are getting 2 responses...my computer is messed up! Anyhow, yes I do smoke. Only about
a pack a week. I know, it sounds insane even as I write it! about
the vinegar...does the kind from the store not work - like the regular grocery store? Bc it didnt help me...in fact I think it caused me a lot of pain. ha. I have definitely tried bland foods, but it seems that as long as there is something in my stomach, no matter what it is...I get horrible pain in my throat from the acid (if I dont take my meds). I have continued to take nexium, even though it messes with my stomach bc Id rather eat and deal with some stomach pains then starve and still have a burning throat. I did try aloe vera juice for the first time yesterday, and it really worked well...immediately too. Im gonna try it without the meds soon to see if I get the same results. Thanks again for replying! And, yes, I am quitting smoking. Nov 1 is actually my quit date...and im not worried. But I will keep you posted.
