ramblings from a mad fedora'd writer
Tuesday's dead
Back from the ENT. The good news is the strep is aaaaaaaalllllll gone. The doctor declared my throat "beautiful," a far cry from the disaster area it was last week. The bad news is that I've got a nasty-ass case of acid reflux. The doc gave me AcipHex for a few days and a scrip for something stronger once that runs out, and referred me to another doctor to see if this doesn't go away.

I suspect it's the hiatal hernia making an antibiotic-induced comeback. *sigh*

The pill has had some effect -- the reflux/hiccups are still present, but much more muted. We'll see how it goes the rest of the day.

The plan for the rest of the day is to rest and write, in that order (I've gotten fucking little sleep the last week, so the former is the greater need), and if I feel up to it at 6.45, go to karate for the first time in over a fortnight. We Shall See.

when my reflux is really bad, I tend to swallow air.

Sorry. Can't see that scrip without doing the above. You have ass effects. /Beavis

Oh man, I feel your pain.
I've had acid reflux (possible GERD) since Feb. Today was the first day I was able to eat solids again (food kept getting caught in my throat), and finally the feeling of constant strangulation is gone. I wouldn't wish this on anyone.
I hope yours is less severe and it passes quickly.
