    Hi Allan,
    I sent a PM for you to read but in addition to that, you may want to ask yourself if you have this condition "Is my GERD flaring up when I play"?
    Hope this helps

    Actually it can cause some people problems. I do recall when I was much younger that when we would be playing and really forcing out high notes that some players including myself would be seeing stars. Years later I realized it was because we were straining so hard we were raising our blood pressure so I would have to think if you already had high blood pressure and started doing your best Maynard impersonation you could pop a blood vessel if you were careful.
