flowergirl- yes, you made the most sense to me. thanks. i will curb my salt although i love it. wonder if i should dump my 25mg trazadone that i take at night to fall asleep? too many meds. oh yes, i have to say. after i went to er in march with chest pains, had boohoo heart tests, spent a day in icu followed by a stress test the following week. they found out it wasn't from my heart. i had scheduled a colonoscopy a few week earlier and they thru in a endo (top down too) . they found i had an ulcer in my stomach and esophagitis also. they gave me prevacid which seems much better. i will return to that dr. in 3 more weeks. one more medicines added. help! oh yes, i turned 68 thru all of this.
