    Hi all,

    I found this site last week and was really intrigued by the Fast Track Diet, I found some people suffering from the exact same symptoms as me, LPR (assumed by myself, granted) causing chronic sinusitis (not really in my sinuses, more behind my uvula) infections requiring antibiotics every single month, I have GERD which is under control via dietary changes (no spicy food or caffeine), and I’ve been screened for allergies which all came back negative, I had my tonsils removed 4 months ago, and I’ve had probably 12 sinus infections within the last 16 months. PPI drugs make my stomach hurt, and don’t work to boot. My ENT specialist literally said, “I don’t know” when I asked what’s wrong with me, and the GI doctor just put me on the PPIs that don’t work. I now have an infectious diseases specialist appointment in a month as a last resort, but I’m pretty sure it’s not going to help, but I’m going in with an open mind, and I’m willing to try anything at this point.

    I decided to start the diet last Tuesday, 1/3/17. The post nasal drip, & raw/sore throat has not changed whatsoever over the 6 days on the diet, and I now can feel another bad sore throat starting which always turns into an infection requiring antibiotics. I am very strict about the diet, my points usually don’t go above 20 in a day. Other than this chronic issue I am very healthy.

    My question is how long does it usually take to start working? I assumed I’d see some sort of change within a couple days, but I haven’t.

    Does anyone have any recommendations, and should I keep going?

    I should add that I have tell-tale signs of LPR, which is why I think I have LPR. Constant feeling of a lump in my throat, thick mucus in my throat that I cannot clear, constant swallowing, waking up with a sore throat, and constant post nasal drip.
