I have severe acid reflux (Demister score 84, normal is 12-14). I am not candidate for any surgery. I had one 6 years ago and it worked very well, but it cannot be repeated due to many reasons. Due to esophagus damage, I do not feel acidity. I take two Pantoprazole and one Ranitidine everyday to keep acid reflux under some control. I try to take precaution such as inclined bed, keep weight under control, and manage food. I have very severe cough all day due to acid reflux damaging throat and esophagus and I am not finding any solution. I have 2 questions: 1) Anyone in similar condition, how do you manage acid reflux. 2) Any suggestion for controlling severe cough. I take cough lozenges 4-5 times a day which numbs throat for 30-60 minutes to give temporary relief. Thank you Kamlesh

Hi there, Since starting Methotrexate 8 weeks ago my C-reactive protein (CRP) and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) levels have been rising. They are now doubled and CRP is now 85. My general practitioner and rheumatologist have both phoned me about it. I am having another blood test tomorrow and then rheumatologist will decide whether or not I stay on it. I was quite surprised when I heard how high it was as joint pain has eased a lot in the last month. I have developed a cough that I can't get rid of and my fatigue has increased. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
