    GERD?

    I might need new medication for GERD (acid reflux). I am trying to set up a virtual appointment. I've been on the same medication and it doesn't seem to be that effective anymore. When I first got treated I worried I had a stomach tumor..now I'm reliving those fears. I just need someone to speak with, cause I'm in isolation and nobody is around.
  2. I don't think there's any reason to worry about that. I'm home right now, possibly infected. I've resigned myself to it. I don't feel too bad and am still continuing with my work.
  3. I still hate using it though. I always talk through a headset and if I can't get to it on time, I start worrying.
  4. I had ringing in my ear (tinnitus) in 2018. My coworkers all knew it drove me crazy. I had a doctor, to use a very non-technical term, hose down my inner ear. He explained that swabbing only removes a small bit of buildup and pushed most deeper in. The ringing cleared up immediately.
  5. I'm glad to hear that. I get headaches all the time and always fear the worst. My MRI in 2018 said everything looked healthy though.
  6. I missed a dentist's appointment early on and I have another scheduled, I think for June. I don't know if I'll be comfortable going. I've been obsessively brushing my teeth, more than three times most days. I have had gum recession in the past but after having a retainer removed and surgery, it's been better. But I can't check to make sure. And I've been sort of catastrophising, I guess. Has anyone been to the doctor or dentist since the pandemic began? What was it like? Did you feel safe? I'd really love to know.
  7. Everything has now reopened as of today despite cases and deaths still on the rise. I brought up my worries in another group and was attacked for being "political". Absolutely unreal.
  8. But people are not being safe. The shelter in place orders have been lifted in my state which is absolute madness. Not surprisingly, the cases have gone up exponentially and the death toll is now over 1000. I was all set to begin a new career. Now I can't for another 2 years. You don't think I'm upset about that? But I'm not endangering other peoples lives and I'm certainly not spitting in peoples faces, as happened in Michigan. Imagine if those people were anything but white, by the way. What a fucking joke this nation has become.
  9. What do you want to know? This website might help. http://www.alsa.org/about-als/what-is-als.html
  10. https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/30/health/report-covid-two-more-years/index.html?fbclid=IwAR1Uv8XmLxw5jkiaCvHMHHM_HiHa4n3P9mVUTuQj1DwFI9AR20VuSMLMuI8 I can't imagine two years of this. I can't imagine losing that many people. I already have no faith in people's ability to stop being selfish and work for the greater good. The people harassing health care workers killed the last shred I had of hope that people were good. They are not. We really do deserve this. If this really goes on that long I may kill myself rather than keep living like this.
  11. That post is nearly 3 years old. Please don't dredge up past causes of stress. I have enough in the present.
  12. now getting chest pains. 😞
