    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    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?

    Sometimes an irritated throat can be reflux, sometimes its something as simple as breathing through the mouth at night due to allergies or colds

    I have asthma and GERD. I wake up sometimes with a sore irritated throat.
