Learning the hard way

With the latest home made cookie episode, I'd have been better off eating red hot coals.
Just thought I'd pass it along for those with esophagus issues - you might want to stay away from ginger!

However, I do have to say that unlike you, I'm fine with ginger!

I know what you mean about the ginger. I never had problems until recently. I have been craving ginger ale, so I've been drinking a can about every night. After I drink it, which always tasted so good, I noticed that I started having a little problem. Can't say it's heart burn because it doesn't really burn, but must be something similar. I did read that ginger is one of the wrong things to have if you get heartburn. Needless to say, I'm still drinking it because it makes the stomach feel better and I'm still having this craving for it. No I'm not pregnant.

Oh you made me laugh. I needed that. Not that your misery is funny and I am sorry for how you feel now. You made me think of the hangover feeling which usually starts after my heartburn that I get from eating chilly (which I had tonight at supper), hotdogs, weiners especially, to many gingersnaps, hot peppers, apple pie, bread pudding, and the list is endless. Is there anything other than paper tasting foods we can eat?
With gentle thoughts,

I recently read that ginger helps improve blood flow and help reduce raynaud's attacks. I've been eating/drinking a lot of it.

What a trade-off, right, Ladies? I LOVE ginger, but barefut had to bare the truth to us all...I'm crushed.
My absolute favorite is pumpkin pie...mine or those close to it.
I have strep throat, so a sweet and thoughtful lady on an Alzheimers forum provided me with a wonderful ginger sipper to help...using fresh ginger root. Would that have the same effect? I haven't tried it and may as well not...if the outcome is the same.

Hope everyone has a great week!
