Hi, I am a regular on here as some of you will know. I am still battling, esophagitis/gerd/hh/reflux which was diagnosed by scope earlier this year. I refused PPI and doc gave me 150mg Zantac to take am and pm. I also take mastic gum and seemed to be getting better. I also cut out spices, way down on alcohol, onions, garlic, fizzy drinks, citrus, most meat and anything that hurt my tum. I feel better for weeks then something sets me off again and I start again.
However, I have developed a sensitivity to smells like: perfume, after shave, deodorant, toilet cleansers, diesel and even the normally lovely smell of passing a log fire if it is smoking. This is making my life a nightmare (we have a log fire at home). Within seconds my throat and chest start burning and can last for hours. I have had this for the last couple of months and my hubs scratches his head and can't understand why I won't let him use body cologne any more.
No one has heard of it just says - you are weird!!!!!!!
Before I go back to my doc with this and no doubt she will say she has never heard of it, can I have any thoughts from you guys. I actually think you will know more than my doc anyway. Other than that, I will google all day tomorrow to find something or someone who has this flippin horrible complaint.
Thanks to you all.
