I went back to the doctor today, and we think I have Acid Reflux Disease "ARD". Sometimes people think acid reflux just causes burping. It's much more than that; pain in your back and ribs, upset stomach, acid build up, nausea, dry mouth, bad taste you can't make go away, and a knot feeling in your throat. Plus you have to find a medicine right for you; prevacid, prilosec, nexium, and pepsid. They all are tweaked a bit and one might work while the other won't. Nexium didn't do anything for me but pepsid is working well. All that pasta, pizza, and dressings have finally came back on me...darn it!! HOW DO THE ITALIANS DO IT!!! GAH!
I'm going to try and start getting out more now, get some sun....I am GHOSTLY pale and very weak, after doing something simple like laundry i feel like i've ran a marathon. Thank you all for all the sweet words over the past few months while we tried to figure out what was wrong with me. I really appreciate it!
