Having been struck down with a viruse recently, I have been researching quite a lot of 'health' stuff on the interent. As you do. (hmm)

This morning, quite out of the blue, I have had a phone call from a lady trying to sell me life insurance! Could that be through 'cookies'? How would they get my phone number though? shock

(ps I'm not that bad, thank goodness!)

Yes, how are you doing jing it seems to have been going on for quite some time?

I think I might be 'on the turn' thank you whitewave. (Due in part to doing what the doc suggested in the first place hmm)

whitewave Thu 18-Jun-15 13:48:18

what did he suggest? Bet it was rest.

Oh no. He wasn't that sympathetic. He told me to up my Omeprazole. But, of course, I had read stuff on the net.... hmm

Done it now and it's made a difference.

Oh whatever Omeprazole is - still if it is doing the trick - will you be able to decrease the dose eventually?

That's what I'm really hoping whitewave. It's stuff that shuts some of your acid production down.
