(i am not a singer and do not use my voice or anything special). the polyp shrank after taking what she said, but every now and then when i would run out of nexium i did not refill it because it didn't bother me not to take it except that i would notice my voice becoming more hoarse when i didn't take it. eventually i would feel the polyp again, go to the doc and she'd explain that i needed the nexium to stop the acid spashing the polyp and causing it to become irritated and swollen again. even while i was on the nexium i would occasionally have the hunger pangs/ growling/unsatiable hunger...usually i thought it was related to having too many alcoholic drinks the evening before or from dehydration (probably due to too much caffeine). i usually drink 10 glasses of water a day and like i said i have cut out caffeine and if i drink alcohol it is limited to 1 glass of wine. my hair is healthy, grows fast but fine/thin which is how it has been all my life. my nails are very strong, grow quickly and have barely noticable vertical ridges in them. currently i do not have any white spots under my fingernails, however it would not be uncommon for me to have an occasional white spot. carmelisa on 2006-03-12 . much of acid is due to life style and diet indiscretion...nexium only aggarvte.. nexium is shown as adverse effects to be (contraproductive to polyp elimination) as well as (appetite increase/confusion)--as B12 affected--with past alcohol use=faulty digestion --encouraged to start b comple vits...and probiotic use... how has stool and passing stool charcteristics changed?before nexium and after/currently? urine/urination? what exact 'name' of contrceptive used?

John Stanton on 2006-03-13 when i burp it is dry. meaning that i never feel any acid coming up my throat. and it is just a small burp that has no flavor or taste. it is just air, but very little. i don't know what causes it because it seems to happen anytime. it doesn't have to be right after a meal. it can happen on an empty stomach too. but then again, i eat something every 30 minutes to an hour because i am so hungry. i am 28 years old, 5'4& quot;, 125 lbs.. no pregnancies. i did not notice any difference in my menses with or without the nexium. except that this time i got my period one day earlier than expected (without nexium) normall, the day before i menstruate i usually feel a sciatic pain shooting down my leg. it can last about 2 days, but this time i did not get the pain. i always have cramps in my lower back and light cramps in the front on the first day of my period. i have frequent bowel movements (about 4 x a day) the for the first 2 days of my period. and they are very soft, thing and long. and more yellow or lighter than usual. i even notice this starting to occur 1 or 2 days before my period. and my period usually lasts 4 or 5 days. it is pretty light since i am on the pill. i am fairly certain that the polyp existed because i used to feel it when i lied my head on a pillow and would swallow. i also could notice it when i would run and had a hard time breathing. the doctor put a telescope up my nose and down my throat and saw it easily. she said it was about 3mm big and i could either have it removed or take steroids to reduce it and nexium to stop my acid reflux from splashing it. she was surprised that i was not a singer and that i do not use my voice in a loud way because she thought it was strange for me to have this irritated polyp. she was also surprised that i did not know i had acid reflux. ( but i really never felt such strong sypmtons until the past month) after the steroids i felt better. i took the nexium for about a year. then i went off of it, because i did not think i really needed it. eventually i felt the polyp again and went back to her. she said i could get it removed with surgery or i could stick with the nexium. carmelisa on 2006-03-15 This thread continues beneath the following ad.Those suffering from acid reflux know that it can be a very painful condition.
