... My iron and ferritin are low as well. There doesn't seem to be any reason for it.

... one of my first clues is that I will have episodes that last for weeks of not being able to take a satisfying breath.

... say that I had stomach pain was an understatement. It was more like pain in my throat so bad that I wanted to stop eating altogether. I am changing the type of iron that I am taking and moving to a different PPI for the reflux as well. We'll see how it goes. ... (21 replies)

Think about it: in clinical trials and studies, the drugs are tested for a relatively short period of time on a SELECT group of patients, who have usually just one medical condition (not a...

... That sounds logical to me Christine. :-) I'll do some research on the LPR. I'm a little skeptical because I don't ever have a problem with eating certain foods and I never use those calcium tabs, tums etc. If there *was* some kind of GERD I would think the dr would have found it through gastroscopy (?). I remember reading something last year about 'pharyngeal' something or... (9 replies)
