Flowergirl, I started taking the Nexium first thing in the AM, and waiting an hour or so to eat.
Then being VERY careful about WHAT I eat, noting spicy or acidic.
And after one month or so, on the Nexium I am finally better.
I forgot to take the Nexium for two days, and thought to myself I have a sore throat- and then realized I had missed two days.
This is my third time on Nexium in the last 4 years- I have tried to stop and I just get bad again
I don't have heartburn, I HAVE/HAD- sore throat , painful speaking and choking
Good luck---to all of you suffering, I relate.
