Having made an appointment with a doctor for my laryngitis and being sick of always being sick and tired with what I thought was a virus(simple cold) he used a scope in my nose and down the back of my throat shot a film all along the way then we watched it together.
He points out my swollen and torn up throat parts and declares “You have Acid Reflux and not a cold.” Now what do I do as mom died from acid reflux turning into Barrett’s Syndrome at 83 and having suffered since her teens with heartburn etc. I think I may have felt it just a handful of times in 62 years but guess what it can be silent.
So diet change is now a must as is weight loss and in just 4 days 8 lbs has come off. I have a long journey but one to live. I will eat a mostly veggie, nuts, seeds and grains with fish and chicken now and then. I have my list of foods and habits to avoid and if I never have to have 8 week long coughing bouts and tons of nasty phlegm and a hard time breathing all the while using inhalers and Codeine I will work hard on this. Do you suffer with reflux or sickness that never lets us what do you do?
OH I bought a cheap pedometer let’s see if I can do this.
