Does anyone out there have problems with water burning or causing one to cough or burp? After my radiation treatments, drinking water caused my throat to burn. Now I can drink water during the day, but at night it causes me to cough and burp and sometimes creates a kind of acid reflux type situation. It's so important to drink water and my mouth is so dry at night. Has anyone tries Thick-it with water? sounds horrible. Help. I'd like some opinions, advice or comments. Please help. I worry about how I'll get enough water when I'm off my peg tube.
