    Thick mucus
    vikkitoria37 posted:
    I can relate to alot of people on here as ive had the same problem for over 2 yrs. I became very ill after going on the ducan diet and losing alot of weight very quickly. After alot of tests i was diagnosed with a post nasel drip and was given Flixonase nasule drops and used the Neilimed sinus rinse twice a day, it did get to the point where it was managable as i was getting periods thoughout the day without the mucus which was a big help.
    About 6 months ago i started burping after meals the mucus was getting thicker more frequent so i went back to the docs and he gave me Lansoprazole 15mg in the morning and 15mg at night the pills were helping but i didnt like the side effects so i decided to search the net and found afew things that work for me, I found that sucking natural soft licorice after meals eases and reduces the mucus conciderably and also drinking Fenell Tea and Nettle Tea are great for the digestive system i also drink Camomile Tea 30 mins before bed helps me sleep.
    Someone else says try flat coke not diet and Gaviscon Double Action which ive not tried yet but maybe it might help someone on here. These suggestions are not a cure but atleast i feel normal again.
