Dear All,

I've now found the caused of my recent Esophagus flare up's! Last week I brought from Morrisons some ready made hummus as a dip to have with some sliced cucumber or salads. Well after a few days of horrid pain which I managed to get under control flared up again after having a small amount of hummus wrapped in some very lean ham for lunch yesterday! The combination mixture of the oil, chickpeas, garlic and Thani paste are now band from my fridge๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž

My fingers are now crossed my Esophagus is now on the mend! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Blummin heck David! I know you've socialised with the best but you had me going then! I loved Ray Davis back in the 60's and 70's ,Amazing voice !

Not sure about teacher's pet but he did make me feel on a slight high !๐Ÿ˜Š

He's 31 with really long dark hair, funny as hell and a real dare devil! Rock climbs every week, plays in a band , teaches at another school and burns the candles at both ends by teaching others in his spare time.... lol

Hi Trish I am glad you've found out. You can make your own hummus using just chick peas and leave all other ingredients out especially raw garlic. Find the best recipe for this on the daily mail website. If you use tinned chickpeas make sure you wash them thoroughly. Otherwise make your own from scratch. However chickpeas itself could be the main culprit for your misery. All the best.

Cheers Megbird for your lovely message! I may have a go at making my own as I have noticed numerous recipe's,, however, I'm weighing up the discomfort against a low fat yoghurt dip and I think my dips may win this one hands down!

I'm going to miss the taste of the hummus but hey ho .... no pain wins !

How's you in the meantime ?

Love Trish

Thanks for your reply. I am doing ok just about. I have few things nagging me at the moment. I hope that i will be fine soon. I am trying my best watching what i eat. Going for an hour walk right now. I have a painful/discomfort toe over the past 3years and it is getting worse every winter. Been to my GP for it. Nothing they can do about it. Apart from being adviced to buy toe support/separator. Nightmares. Have a nice day

Oh blummin heck, painful ! Do you suffer with gout as that's very painful and normally affects the feet!

I have heard that eating lots of celery helps the circulation in your toes and taking daily turmeric is also brilliant for the joints! I'm about to start taking turmeric daily to see if it relieves the inflammation in my knee's!

Enjoy your walk !

Love Trish x

You can't miss gout just a tad more than a little pain / discomfort. You can't even allow the bed sheet to touch it. Acute attack usually overnight so as soon as you put your foot to the floor its like being hit with 40,000 volts.

No walkies, can't drive.

For info. My son thought he had it GP says flat feet. Going for full assessment on Fri @ Foot clinic.

New one on me. Wasn't born with it.

It is not gout. It is a second toe from left (from my small toe) on my left foot. All started by wearing these old white wedges 3years ago. I went to a Radio Music festival in London. Gosh the pain on both of my feet made me leave just after 2 hours. It was a sunday evening so all shoe shops were closed. I left the festival and went home. That it is how it started and that was the end of me and the old white wedges.x

Hi Monika

It sounds like to me that you need to visit your GP if your having chest pains with throat obstruction ! I would give GP or 111 a call asap !
