I used to visit the forum regularly for a couple of years after I first found it. It was most helpful in that I now had contact with people with whom I had a problem in common. This forum has been a great support to me, now just knowing it was there. I believe the responses from fellow suffers have helped me minimise the occurrences and the effect. My episodes occur after mid-day meals. John D suggested soft-drinks before eating, no greasy or hard to digest foods, everybody says lie down quickly. I also drink very little alcohol now, (one beer or wine a week) and never at mid-day meals. Episodes were occuring fortnightly for a period, I have one a year at the moment.

Thanks for the forum. I hope it is of benefit to many.

Kind regards to all John L
