I have horrible acid reflux. A few months ago, I found out that acid reflux can actually be a symptom of Lupus. I think back to my younger middle school days dealing with heartburn and it finally makes sense.
I’ve tried using over the counter meds (example Prevacid, Nexium, etc.) for the problem but they wouldn’t work. I was put on a prescription for it and that finally gave me relief. However every so often, around when my Lupus is more active, something as simple as peanut butter toast with some water to drink, can make me feel miserable.
Last night I ate something that is normally bound to give me heartburn. Then I ate something else bound to give me heartburn on top of that. I expected to feel lousy today (well I do but for other reasons) but much to my surprise, I have no heartburn! I’m not sure if I am just lucky or if it’s the CBD oil working. I think it’s the CBD oil! 😉
Today I am dealing with joint and back pain but I think the oil works on the “smaller” issues first, while it helps the “larger” issues the longer you take it. But I don’t know if that’s how it works, just guessing.
