    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    I began having treatments a year ago but stopped before completing the full course of sensitivity testing. My symptoms worsened continually. I began treatment again a few weeks ago and have already had great relief. I have severe reflux of the taste of food into my mouth after eating. It is very difficult to deal with the burning and bitter, oily saliva which begins after the first bite and lasts until I go to sleep. I was experiencing nausea and pain from a hiatal hernia and that is completely relieved. The taste is still strong but not as intense as last month. Am hoping after completing treatment that the reflux will gradually dissipate. My Dr says this is caused by anxiety. Only natural to have anxiety build when every bite of food causes such discomfort--this began about 4 years ago and AAT has been the only beneficial treatment other than not eating!
