I am needing some help and support through my course of treatment for a recently diagnosis of acid reflux of my larynx? I have lost 80 pounds and have kept most of it off-gained muscle that I never ever had before!
I currently weigh 130, but I am taking quadruple doses of meds for this ulcer? I have been taking this stuff for 3 weeks, and have 3 more to go before my follow up exam with an ENT.
I have been following my can't have this diet-#1 was NO CHOCOLATE( I have done really really well but that in itself is a daily challenge)!, not eating spicy foods, and I have cut back on my diet soda(POP), but I am so tired and weak, I just want to sleep, my legs are swollen ,and my hair is falling out-too much that I had to get 6 inches cut off to try to keep its appearance half way presentable?
I also have hypothyroidism-Hashimoto's disease, and only half of my thyroid left-I take my thryoid meds daily but I think that all of the other meds are interfering with my thyroid-causing the tiredness, hair loss, etc.
I haven't gained any weight but haven't felt well enough to exercise?
I called my doctor and they basically said that I needed to continue my meds and to keep my appointment in three weeks?
I am sorry to have such a long story, but I am needing some input from others that have had acid reflux/taken meds for it and what I can do to get through the next three weeks? HELP...
I am taking double doses of Prilosec and double doses of Zantac before bed?
Anyone that has anything that would CHEER ME UP I would greatly appreciate it- Reply or feel free to send me a Private Message.
