Lori , I am so glad you got to the chiro and got some help. What a relief and also to have more instruction on how to do your exercises the correct way. After another visit on Monday you should be good to go. I expect you will need it after the sales you are gonna hit today. I bet you find some great deals. Thank goodness you went to the chiro otherwise you would have been miserable and probably had to give up and go home during the middle of it. I woke up this morning with my low back hurting so bad I thought I'd die and usually it is the legs and feet that hurt way more than the back but not this morning. It is beter now , I am always very stiff in the morning but today was big time pain along with it. I'm afraid that I am not gonna make it giving up the PPI's like Kate did. Of course I thought they were not helping BUT after a couple of days off them I thought I was gonna die. Late yesterday and all last nite my esophagus and chest and upper back hurt so much ALL THE TIME, not just on swallowing , that I had to break down and take a PPI this morning. While I do not see that they help with the swallowing or chest pain perhaps they have been keeping it from hurting 24/7 . At least it is only when I swallow before , even though , I am talking even swallowing water. That is better than solid pain with no relief between swallows. No I have no pain pills , unless you count Vioxx. The Drs have never given me any . Of course I have Tylenol, Aleve, Excedrin and the like but don't touch pain for me. I just suffer. Anyway I tried and I will be forced to call the GP next week and they will set up the manometry. I tried so hard to get out of it but I can't deal with this much longer. 4 and 1/2 mos. later of strict Dr compliance and Barrium Swallow and endoscopy and umpteen pills and I am right back where I started. I give up , will go for the manometry though I am scared of it .It is just time to do something. I've got ice on my back now and dreading trying to swallow lunch . Let me know how you come out today and again I am delighted your back is so much better. You had it all messed up from that gardening ! Lia
