Re: debating to have lip biopsy... need advice, story and labs inside

I've had the lip biopsy done about 3 weeks ago. What hurt was the shots to numb the area. Afterwards, you won't feel a thing. The numbness goes away after an hour or so. Then I took 2 tylenols...

Re: Constant cough, throat closing feeling, constant phlegm

I carry around bottled water and take small sips whenever my throat feels tight and phlegmy. I spray OTC Saline spray into my nose and somehow, it helps. My ENT Dr. says I have to keep myself...

Re: Are there any fruits I can eat on a no sugar diet?

I have read online that green apples, and berries (blackberries, raspberries) are okay but only after a week or two of being on the diet. For sweeteners, I use STEVIA.

Re: Bedtime & Food

Baked chicken works for me too, with a little brown rice and steamed broccoli or steamed carrots. There's enough fiber there to keep you full til the next morning. I sometimes follow it with some...

Question Prilosec and probiotics at the same time

I'm taking Prilosec 20 mg 2x a day for acid reflux. I also noticed that I have thrush due to some antibiotics I've taken several weeks ago. My inhaled corticosteroid might also be the culprit for...

Re: Is acid reflux good reason cause short of breath?

Janewhite1, by plain inhaled steroids do you mean like Qvar? I was on Qvar before and was put on Dulera. Dulera scares me because of the black box warning. It's a huge mess. Dr. diagnosed cough...

Re: throat clearing

I have the same problem. My doctor has put me on Prilosec for the reflux and Flonase for post nasal drip which he thinks is accumulating in the back of my throat.

I am really sorry you're still not feeling well. I've had the flu last February and I'm still coughing (not the same symptoms as you have). Have you had a chest Xray to make sure your lungs are...

Re: Anxiety?

Do you have heartburn or acid reflux? I experienced heartburn for the first time and it happened two days in a row. I thought I was having a heart attack. The pain radiated to the back as well. It...

Re: Reflux and shortness of breath

Re: severe anxiety with Advair

I wouldn't stop taking the Advair until you talk to your doctor. I was on Qvar and Albuterol but it didn't seem like it was working. I was taken off Qvar for a few days (prior to a breathing test)...
