I agree with all. I have had reflux and a hiatial hernia, before I knew I had SJS. Recently I have gotten new insurance and had to wait to get my protonix refilled, ( they had to pre-appove it) The pharmacist sold my husband an over the counter drug, that was not very effective. We went out for Chinese food, and after we were done eating, I had an attack where I just could not stop coughing and the phlegm got so thick it was choking me. I tried to drink water to settle it, and then I excused myself and went outside, because I was afraid I was going to really be sick. Now I am back on the protonix Thank heavens.
The other thing I noticed, is I can no longer stand to eat anything hot or spicy, my whole mouth and throat burns, and nothing seems to take it away. I have learned to be very careful what I eat. I too used to like hot peppers and hot wings.
