Learning more about eosinophilic esophagitis

I’ve been having throat issues this fall, not sure if it’s something I’m eating or if it’s some kind of airborne allergies. Either way, it feels like someone has tied a drawstring in my throat and is pulling the strings. It’s tight in my throat and my shoulders and travels up to my ears. I’ve also been having some heartburn.

I started budesonide therapy, mixing one .5mg vial in with about four teaspoons of stevia that I get from Trader Joe’s. But it’s inconsistent and a pain to make, so I was looking around for another idea and got to reading the APFED.org (American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders) site. They have a support board which I’ve only dipped a toe in, but already learned that some people take budesonide with applesauce. I’m psyched! I need to try it like that – I’ll bet it is much more tolerable that way.

Looking forward to learning more!
