I had an endoscopy and they found a hiatal hernia plus gastritis, but the
doctor basically said to eat better and take over the counter medicine
. Anyway, now I'm on Prevacid. The mucus and slime is just slightly better, and I've been taking this for over a month. It gets worse when I eat, but it's pretty much always there, even when I haven't eaten anything at all, which makes no sense. I get issues from foods that shouldn't cause problems, such as bananas, apples, and even salad.
