    Hi Dean,

    Sorry for your loss and hope you start to feel better soon.

    I have come to realize that it's best to stick with a diet that works for me and not deviate else I suffer. I only have reflux but it can be really horrible.

    I don't drink so can't speak about the beers but usually they say anything alcoholic is a no no.

    What meds do you take?

      Thanks for reply angel .

      I take 20 mg of omeprazole twice a day .but doesn't seem to be helping loads at the minute. I constantly have a really sore throat and have to constantly clear my throat all day .like Flem or mucus.

      Hi Dean,

      You are welcome. What about your diet, are you watching what you eat.

      As I go along I am learning what affects me. For example it seems that sugar may be a trigger for acid reflux for me.

      I was feeling better last week now my stomach is bacK to where I was the week before. I have to go back on a strick diet's no fun but I hate how I feel when il my stomach is acting up.

      So much pressure from my stomach up into my chest and the pain in my stomach and back is horrible plus the sore throat.

      Anyway hope you recover soon.
