      About a month ago,I had a very hard time moving my bowels,no matter

      how much I strained nothing would pass,there was alot of blood and

      alot of pain from allt he straining,well it happened again the day

      before yesterday,but this time there was alot of pain right above my

      belly button and it did not go away! I also have bad acid reflux and

      htought maybe it goes hand and hand,but am not sure. We’ll I decided

      to go to the low income clinic here,and the doctor told me because

      you came here I really dont think you want to go thru all the testing

      because of how much they are and I know you can’t afford them,so I’m

      going to see if its consipation and treat you for that and see if it

      gets better instead of getting worse,but if it does get worse you

      will have to get tested weather you can afford it or not! He told me

      I also gained 10 pounds or so I was 230 and now I weigh 248. That

      made me depressed,he told me that I needed to loose the weight,he

      said most of my problems can be weight related,he also told me I

      needed to go on a heartburn/acid reflux diet,but he didn’t write the

      diet down for me so i didn’t know if that would help me with my

      weight or just my heartburn situation. He told me to eats lots of

      things with fiber,and to cut spicy foods and cheeses but mainly eat

      more veggies and lots of fruits and drink alot! I for one love spicy

      foods,onions,peppers,garlic,lemonade and cheese. I dont know what to

      do or how to begin what he is suggestioning. It made me feel awful

      that I gained 10 pounds,I don’t excercise,barely get out of the house

      unless it is to go swimming with my son. I don’t even know what

      triggers my heartburn,or making me consipated. I’m such a mess right

      now,he said he wants to see me in 3 months to see if I improved.What

      can I do to just start? I cant be out in the heat else my asthma send

      me to the hospital. So Im kind of stuck.What do you all suggest? He

      prescribed Nexium,but i thought there was a warning/recall for that

      sometime ago.What do you all suggest?
