I'm praying for you too. Most of us know just how you feel with that pressure and pain under the ribs. It's no fun. I believe the flush you take tonight will probably eliminate it.
I've never felt that feeling in the throat though, just the pain and pressure.
As for your question about the glass of apple juice and teaspoon of apple cider, or apple cider vinegar. I have tried both. I think you're supposed to use the vinegar at least that's the way Andreas answered my question to him. I'll be praying for you tonight too.
