    You're having a tough time of it, aren't you?

    I think you need to check with your GP or pharmacist about being unable to take medication due to reflux. I've had GORD for years but I can still take meds. Don't presume that supplements will be OK though. They can be hard on stomachs too. Take advice from your GP or pharmacist.

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.
