I get acid reflux, Prilosec (Omeprazole Magnesium) every other day keeps it at bay. If I take it every day I get indigestion, as though I don't have enough stomach acid. It seems different foods set it off for different people. For me it's garlic more than anything else, followed by Nutrigrain Cereal Bars (weird, huh?) If I need immediate relief Sour Patch Kids instantly kick back the acid for about 5 minutes at a time. I can string a few together over 20 minutes or 1/2 an hour to give the Prilosec time to kick in. I keep some in the car for such times.

My eyes are starting to have issues focusing on close things and I get headaches from staring at a computer all day and start getting tunnel vision after a few hours, low magnification reading glasses are working well for me.

Skating related: I have flat arches, most stock boots hurt. A lot.
Yes, all that. Red Wine, even half a glass, killer. I originally did it for heart smart. But can't tolerate it.

I always wear arch supoorts now. As a kid I hated shoes, couldn't wait to go al summer without. Now it's lace tight and put in your arch support. Unless I have my sketchers on. My skates seem to have good suport though.
