I went to an ENT (Ear Nose and throat Doctor) today becasue I wanted to check out why I had a typle of swollen gland on the left side of my throat for the past 7 months. I made the appointment to ease a fear I have had about it being a cist or something on my thyroid(as it was a similar symptom that my friend had and he was diagnosed with a cyst on his thyroid.)
So, as I am telling the ent doc about my symptoms he cuts me short and said "Oh, you have Acid Reflux, I am giving you a script and some samples to get you started on some pills that will take it away" Naturally I asked what caused this acid reflux....he said with conviction" Fruits and Vegetables" Oh boy, am I in for a lifetime of some scid reflux..b/c I didn't get the script filled..but I did take the samples home....what? they were free! lol
Can any doctors on this site offer some great advice..if you are not a doc..feel free to add a comments too!
