I need relief. I am on Prilosec (about to start mess day 2) prescribed by an allergist. I am considering calling a doctor tomorrow if this doesn't improve on. Ouch.

I have a new prescription and a plan of action, but hopefully this will work and no further testing will be needed. In the mean time, I need my brains in gear all day because I can't drink tea or coffee.

Lord have mercy.

Can you drink Chrystal Light? Some of them have caffeine.

Through the intercessions of St Panteleimon and St. Luke, Lord have mercy!

I don't know. By the end of the day, I have pain without caffeinated drinks. I am not drinking soda or juice (though I did have a quarter cup of soda the other day). I put three creamers in my afternoon tea.

I wouldn't be surprised if I have an ulcer.

You might get the caffeine fix with a couple of Excedrin, too. Ask your doctor.

I mentioned caffeine 5 hours before getting up for work.

Praying for you.

8 am down to one medicine, and the occasional tums. Still need to be a little careful what I eat.

WORK is totally getting to my stomach. Big week. Long day. Tired. Good night.
