Thanks for sharing

Thanks to everyone who has written about stretches and ppi medication in the past. I have just returned from hospital where I had a little stretch. Some inflammation was seen so I have to see my GP to get a prescription for "high dose of PPI for one month then repeat gastroscopy" I wasn't aware of reflux being much of a problem so a bit surprised by that. I came home, read all the posts about it and now feel so much better informed...and generally better!

That is good to hear! After one of my sessions I was told that I had signs of reflux that they could see from the endoscope, but i had not felt anything recently. But for a few days afterwards I really did get to taste it - but then it wore off. Perhaps it was the disturbance cause dby the endoscope that might have done it.

Good luck with it!



Thanks Alan. I think swallowing is a bit easier today....we shall see

At least the sun has come out at last!



Only way is forward now hope it gets better each day for you!


Thank you Cherry. I'm not sure if it has made a difference! But should I be taking more care to avoid reflux? Does it do a lot of harm? I'm aware of it happening sometimes at night but didn't think it worth bothering about. I sleep on a big solid pillow plus a normal one over that...haven't tried a wedge or bricks under the bed....

or gaviscon...
