  1. It's about a serious topic, but makes me smile.

    GERD?

    Not sure what possessed me to do so but I started googling it and now I'm freaking out! I've also contacted a doctor that helps with allergies, and hope to get some peace of mind there. Our house is quite dusty and moldy and we're still waiting on repairs to fix it.
  3. It's possible I have allergies. My doctor suggesting taking flonase on a regular basis.

    GERD?

    But being put to sleep and never waking up again is a scary prospect.

    GERD?

    Well like I said earlier, I don't like being anesthitized.

    GERD?

    What's an EGD? Was is scary? I'm worried I may have permanent damage.

    GERD?

    I'm seeing my primary physician tomorrow. I've been more diligent in taking my meds and I stick to foods that cause the least flare ups. Right now I have a mild sensation. Not terrible, but feels like something in my chest. Trying hard to to be scared but I am.

    GERD?

    I can't help but worry. I am new to this medication but took awhile to get into the routine of taking it each morning. The older I get the more things I have to remember before leaving the house. It seems like some things make it flare up no matter what. Coffee always makes it worse. I'm just scared there's permanent damage or something. I called my doctor today but haven't heard back yet.
  11. The closest thing I can think of is suddenly twitching awake just before falling asleep but I haven’t had this exact experience.
  12. Hi I've had headaches since my early teens and they're just a part of life for me now. Stress can be a factor but often for me the weather is too. Is there a high pollen or mold count in your area or has there been a lot of rain? The best thing is always to see a doctor but if I can, I try to help people relax a bit before they see them. Did you see your doctor in person or remotely?

    GERD?

    Also scared of being put under anesthesia. The last time I did so was for a dental issue and I stuck a waiver in front of me saying they weren't responsible in the event of my own death. I am not sure if they put you under at the GI but if so, I don't think I can last another week of worrying about it. I'm gonna go crazy.

    GERD?

    I've also noticed, since I'm working from home, I spend long periods of time seated or on my bed and don't cough during that time and then when I get up I start coughing again. I don't know what that means if anything.

    GERD?

    Have any of you have the issue with coffee I mentioned above?

    GERD?

    I set up an appointment for next week. Will try not to get too nervous until then. 😧

    GERD?

    They didn't look down my throat like they normally do, so I have to go to someone who can look deeper. I'm scared of what they'll find. It's called Dexalin or something and before work I didn't take it because it had fallen behind a dresser and I didn't see it. It flared up again today while at work.
  18. I didn't either. The discoloration seems to be a harmless side effect though.
  19. Yes I bought pepto to deal with heartburn but stopped right away.

    GERD?

    Thanks for sharing, I saw an ENT a few days ago and they recommended me to another doctor. I really hope they don't find anything seriously wrong with me.
  21. I mentioned it to my dad. He asked if I took pepto bismol. I said I'd just started within the last few days. He said that was the culprit. I can at least sleep easily now. what a relief.
  22. Today I noticed my stool was darker than it normally is. I called my doctor's office and was only able to speak to the front desk. I will not get a call back from the doctor until tomorrow. I'm really scared. I know this is a common source of fear so if anyone's been through it please help. I want to be able to sleep tonight until I care speak with my doctor. I should add this has happened before and normally goes away after a day or two but I've had a number of other health scares lately and am pretty overwhelmed!
  23. Sorry, didn't mean to include that.
  24. Nowhere. Just living my life as usual.
  25. I'm now at home, glad it's friday but also not so glad. Weekends usually means less structure. Listening to the rain is relaxing though even if it does cause me to lose power on occasion.
