DEBORAHDH54 I also suffer from GERD and I am also
on medication(Nexium). It has been at least 5 years and
I hate taking it for so long. I have read that it is not good
to be on these meds for a long time. I think that being
overweight and anxious certanly don't help. I stop taking
the meds periodically and jsut try to get by with taking
some Gaviscon. I want to find a permanent solution.
I am eliminating foods that I think are triggers - off them
for a few weeks and then reintroduce them If it still bothers
me, I don't have it anymore. I have also cut out coffee, and
mainly drink water, but I do have green tea as I have read
that this will help against oesephaegal cancer.
I hope that you find what works for you. Great that you have
quit smoking. Congratulations also on the weight loss.
