I get it that you can't advise. Have you been dealing with this for a while? It just seems like I think about this stuff so much because your diet completely changes and I miss lying flat on my bed. Sliding down my mattress stinks. My kids worry because I have always been thin and now I don't know what to eat. I guess red meat digests slower or something. My first dr. had that as a no. I do take 20 mg of omeprazole twice per day. I know I loved pop but had not had it for a couple months before I treated myself when we went to Fl. over Christmas. Got a stomach ache so I guess my gut was not used to it anymore since I used to drink lots of pop and coffee too. Tons of spicy food and never knew. I would have never guessed I would have this. I only used antacids maybe once or twice a year. I try to ground myself sometimes when I get scared because I could have this and be undiagnosed. I Still confusing to have different opinions. My first dr. sent the letter for yearly endoscope but I may just continue with the university. I know oatmeal is supposed to be really good but I was kind of a sugar addict without diabetes. I know this as I had so many tests. Numerous CT scans and thankfully a colonoscopy as I did have precancerous polyps too.
