Blah, I have it both in my stomach and in my larynx (yes, the reflux can cause a cough and laryngitis). I've been to the GI guy and he put something down my stomach and that's what I had. But lately I've been bad about earing right and have been gaining some weight and the gastric reflux has kicked up bad. I have a gnawing in the chest area that only drinking skim milk or eating an apple can soothe and I have that cough and hoarse throat tht is also caused by the reflux. Ok, I have a doctor's appointment. soon, but what I was wondering is, if anybody has it, do you have any special remedies that help? I heard of apple cidar with Mother in it. (I am not sure what Mother is...lol). I have heard that ginger tea is good, but then I also read that tea is bad, even decaffeinated. Any helpful foods/bad foods? Good/bad habits? I am trying to do my best to ease it while I wait for my appointment. Any/all words of wisdom GREATLY appreciated as they always are. Oh, yeah. The worst part is I had a tooth extracted last week and the bone is still sore. I've been back to the dentist twice. It's not infected so all he can do is put medicine in the bone, which isn't very effective so I have to take Ibprofen for that as it gets painful. That can't be helping the reflux much!!! Problems, problems. I ain't getting better, I'm getting OLDER!
