Yes, he agrees I have reflux, and potentially a gastric problem, but it isn't anything more sinister (I wasn't worried about that to be honest). He's put me on PPIs for two weeks then I come back for a review. If they don't work I might have an endoscopy, but again, I don't expect that to be the case.

Yay! An end to the heartburn!

Have you considered food allergies? I haven't had any serious reflux since I said goodbye to beer (and most other wheat). Back when I had the endoscopy etc... they said I'd be on acid blockers for life. I haven't used any in I don't know how long.

It's something I'll start thinking about... As and when I have another attack I'll detail my food for the last 24 hours in a food diary.

I don't get reflux if I don't drink and don't stress too much. I also find if I eat much more bland food it doesn't happen either. These things are fairly obvious though. Dairy can also cause reflux even if you aren't lactos intollerant. There's an enzyme in milk that causes it.

I had an endoscopy shortly before my wedding because I was in such a state with my digestion. Apparently the valve to my oesophagus doesn't work properly all the time. They also suggested that I could be susceptible to a disorder called barretts disease which is a pre-cancerous type of thing. Anyway, an endoscopy can be a good way of checking things out there, and well worth it really. At least you know what's going on down there then, and it's really no big deal. They knock you out for it and you wake up and get tea and bikkies.

Just fyi, it takes a good 7 days for dairy to clear your system, not sure about other foods..

That's what my Uncle has just been diagnosed with.

I doubt it's dairy - I have so little of it in my diet at present. But it's useful info, thanks you two.

I just got paid today. (that's making me happy enough!)
I'm taking a half-day at work, leaving at noon, going up to the local DHL distribution center to have an interview for a part-time dockworker.
Now that doesn't seem like much of a big deal, but I'm hoping that it will grow to full-time. See, my job I'm at now requires a 30-mile (48km for all the metric folks) commute, one-way. So i'm at 60 mi (96.5km!) per day, just to get to work. Now I'm sure some of you might drive further, but regardless, the DHL gig is only 4 miles away. If I can get this job eventually to full-time, I can totally wipe out this commute-heavy-madness crap I'm into now.
However, this job allows me to sit on here for hours a day without worry of getting caught and whatnot. And that's a rarity for anybody, I'm sure. ;)

Hopefully I'll be able to get this job, work both for awhile, and make assloads of moolah. I want to be closer to home, spend less on gas, and make more money. Keep your fingers crossed! :)

Good for you. Hope you'll be toasty in the shortest possible time.
