Heartburn or GERD can Kill

Heartburn is a common annoyance. The busy lifestyle, quick meals, fatty or spicy foods all contribute to the occasional need of a chewable pain reliever. The acceptance of heartburn as an inconvenient, but natural, part of the daily grind can blind you to the warning that a severe heartburn symptom can bring.

Heartburn as a Disorder

Heartburn can be a symptom as well as a disorder. Simple heartburn or GERD can be controlled and dealt with. However, heartburn can signal the presence of a much more serious problem. If it’s heartburn, you will have a burning sensation in the chest usually after eating. There may be a spread of the burning to the throat, sometimes accompanied by a bad taste, difficulty in swallowing, belching, coughing, hoarseness and/or wheezing.

It can become worse by lying down or bending over or by eating. Relief can come from an antacid. While the more severe heartburn symptoms may be mistaken for a heart attack, simple heartburn is usually not made worse by exercise. If there is any concern that the pain may signal a heart attack, get help quickly.

Ladies Golf Apparel and Fashion

By Rhys Jones

I was perusing one of those 'Golfing for Women' magazines the other day and started wondering where the women are, who wear the golf apparel modeled in women's golf magazines? I've never seen women, professionals included, who would dress in such expensive and outrageous clothing!

It's so simple to spend tons of money kitting yourself out for the sport of golf. Think about hats, sunglasses, gloves, shirts, shorts, socks, windsheeters and shoes, and it is obvious that the costs add up very quickly, even if you do your shopping at cheap online sales. Then you have to factor in the cost of clubs, balls, bag, cart and fees and you have to play a round of golf really quite frequently to keep the "CPU" (cost per use) down to a tolerable level.

One glossy advert showed a beautiful model in very short shorts (like that's allowed on courses!) that cost nearly $300, a golf shirt at almost $600, a jacket by Ralph Lauren at almost $200 and two-toned Utuser shoes costing $400 plus.

That totals just about $1,500! I know that it would be impossible for me to get the CPU on that outfit down to anywhere near a normal level in my entire golfing life! Please don't misunderstand me - I do love clothes and I do really, really love shoes, but I could never afford, nor even want, golf shoes or pants that cost as much as most people's weekly wages.

OK, you need comfy golf shoes that don't look like something your grandmother would have worn, but you can easily find less expensive and still fashionable shoes.

I have bought several really stylish golf outfits, even though none of them are famous brand names. If I were to add up the cost of all of those articles of clothing, it would not come to the price of a Tse golf shirt. Personally, I would prefer to have several trendy outfits than one that is priced way too much.

If I were to wear a $1,500 set of clothes to play golf in, I would just be too worried about getting it dirty or sweating in it to play a proper game of golf.
