    I am in my 60's have been able to deal with acid reflux. I am 30 pounds overweight and need to lose weight because it is adding to increased acid reflux and now I get burning sensation in left breast when I belch.

    I want to know if the burning is caused by acid reflux and mastitis? How do I deal with them both holistically? I know I have to lose weight but what foods/diet. I am also an extremely stressed person due to work and home.

    thank you for your comments and suggestions.

  • I took keppra for seizure disorder and developed a severe rash with blisters, peeling skin, redness, fever.
    On April 1st I blacked out suddenly while driving my car.The neurologist said I had a seizure disorder according to findings on my EEG. Little information was given, but a prescription for 1 gram of Keppra per day was given. Immediately I became ill after taking the Keppra...nausea, vomiting, chills, fever, weakness. After two weeks of being ill I stopped taking the drug. Gradually,I felt better.About 2.5 weeks after stopping the drug I developed a very red rash with blisters, itching, and it looked like I had been scalded.My skin peeled. Fever returned. I went to the ER in a small community and was told it was a YEAST infection.I knew this was not right and went to a major teaching hospital where I was treated for Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. I am now having kidney function issues. I've had Polycythemia vera for 11 years.It is a rare,incurable cancer,but I have had excellent care.Because this neurologist did not review my drug list or allergies and cancer treatment, I suffered and will have to deal with the consequences of his lack of attention to someone who is already chronically ill. If he had looked at my drug allergies he would have seen Lamectil on the list, too. I've wondered if this will shorten my life.
