Hi Diane, How did your Dr's appointment on the 16th turn out? My throat is feeling a little better, I am still on the diet, I really do not want to take a chance and go off it until I feel 100 percent better and than maybe eat a little bit of something I really enjoy. The Ent I went to wants me to go for the 24 hour PH test...They insert a tube through your nose down to your stomach and you have a moniter attached to your waist to measure the acids that come up...I am not looking forward to going through that but I am going to have to grin and bear it...The gastro dr has to set that up for me. I am going to see him on Monday. Hope you are feeling much better..Write back when you have a chance!!!View Thread
Hi Diane...Sorry I took so long to respond...I hope your EDG went ok.....I went to an ENT dr in NYC that I found On Dr Oz's website that specializes in reflux, gerd & LPR....He told me I have LPR, that is why my throat is sore...He changed my meds and assured me that my throat will get better in time....I have to be on a low fat diet, no caffine....I got my self so depressed from this....mentally I am feeling better and just hoping for the best....Please let me know how you are doing...Wising you all the best, CarolynView Thread
