How to Install Basement Drywall

Transfer Outlet Cutouts

When installing thin paneling, put up drywall as a substrate for the paneling to attach to.

For transferring electrical outlet cutouts onto the drywall, use lipstick or another marking tool to leave an impression on the drywall (Image 1). Trace around the outlet box (Image 2), set the drywall in place and press it up against the boxes.

Step 2

use spacers so drywall does not touch concrete

Install Spacers

Use spacers so the drywall doesn’t touch the concrete floor and possibly pick up any moisture that might be present in the concrete. Allow a 1/2″ space between the drywall and the floor.

Step 3

cover window and cut out after drywall is secure

make reference lines on drywall for studs

cut outlet markings outside lines on drywall

secure drywall to studs

Attach the Drywall

Use a drywall saw to cut outlet markings outside the lines on drywall (Image 1).

Secure the drywall to the studs (Image 2). Countersink the screws, making sure to only dimple the paper. Be careful not to break through the paper or this will compromise the structural integrity of the drywall.

Make reference lines on the drywall (Image 3) as a stud reference when screwing in the drywall.

For windows, cover the window and come back to cut it out after the drywall is secure (Image 4).

Acid Reflux Symptoms: Heartburn, Regurgitation, Dyspepsia, and More #acid #reflux #symptoms,

Acid Reflux Symptoms

Lots of people are intimately familiar with acid reflux symptoms. More than 60 million Americans experience acid reflux at least once a month. Acid reflux disease, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD ), can produce a variety of symptoms.

What Are the Common Acid Reflux Symptoms?

Heartburn. regurgitation, and dyspepsia are a few of the most common acid reflux symptoms.

Heartburn. Also called acid indigestion. heartburn is a burning pain or discomfort that can move up from your stomach to the middle of your abdomen and chest. The pain can also move into your throat. Despite its name, heartburn doesn’t affect your heart .

Regurgitation. Another common symptom of acid reflux is regurgitation — or the sensation of acid backing up into your throat or mouth. Regurgitation can produce a sour or bitter taste, and you may experience a “wet burp” or even vomit some contents of your stomach .

Dyspepsia. Many people with acid reflux disease also have a syndrome called dyspepsia. Dyspepsia is a general term for stomach discomfort. Symptoms of dyspepsia include:

Symptoms of acid reflux may be a sign that stomach acid has inflamed your esophagus. When that happens, stomach acid can damage the lining of your esophagus and cause bleeding.

Although acid reflux is extremely common and rarely serious, don’t ignore your acid reflux symptoms. Making a few lifestyle changes and using over-the-counter antacids are often all you need to control acid reflux symptoms.

When Do Acid Reflux Symptoms Occur?

Acid reflux symptoms most often occur:

  • After eating a heavy meal
  • When bending over or lifting an object
  • When lying down, especially on your back

People who have frequent acid reflux symptoms most often experience them at night. Nighttime GERD also produces the most pain. However, the level of pain does not always indicate the degree of damage to your esophagus.

More than half of all pregnant women experience heartburn during pregnancy. Increased hormones and pressure from a growing fetus can combine to produce this acid reflux symptom. In most cases, heartburn goes away after delivery.

Continued

What Makes Acid Reflux Symptoms Worse?

Certain foods can make the symptoms of acid reflux worse for some people. To lessen your symptoms, try avoiding:

  • Citrus fruits
  • Chocolate
  • Caffeinated drinks or alcohol
  • Spicy, fatty, or fried foods
  • Garlic and onions
  • Peppermint
  • Tomatoes

Are There Potential Complications With Acid Reflux Symptoms?

Usually, acid reflux symptoms cause no complications. In a few cases, continued esophageal damage can lead to scarring, which may cause the esophagus to narrow. The narrowing creates strictures and makes it difficult to swallow. You may have dysphagia. a sensation that food is stuck in your esophagus. In some cases, normal cells in the lining of the esophagus may be replaced by a different type of cell. This is called Barrett’s esophagus. which can sometimes develop into cancer .

When Should I Call the Doctor With Acid Reflux Symptoms?

Be sure to call your doctor if you don’t get lasting relief from medications. Also call the doctor right away if you have any “alarm” acid reflux symptoms, such as these:

  • Unexpected weight loss
  • Blood in vomit
  • Black, tarry, or maroon-colored stools
  • Difficulty or pain with swallowing

Other acid reflux symptoms that should prompt a call to your doctor include:

Sometimes, people confuse the symptoms of heart attack with symptoms of acid reflux disease. That’s because pain in the chest can feel like heartburn. When in doubt, call your doctor.

  • Chest pain. pressure, or fullness lasting more than a few minutes or that goes away and comes back
  • Pain or discomfort in your neck, shoulder. upper back, or jaw
  • Shortness of breath, with or without chest pain
  • Dizziness. lightheadedness, or nausea
  • Sweating along with chest pain

TIRED OF GLASSES CONTACTS?

Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery with the LenSx® Laser.

EXPERT

OPTICAL CENTER

AM I A CANDIDATE

FOR LASIK?

Over the past 10 years, I have worked with over 30 Lasik surgeons in Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee no one has better skills than The Eye Guys at Atlantic Eye Institute. It is a pleasure to be affiliated with this fine practice.

Dr. Brian DenBeste. Founder LaserVue

LASIK surgery made my vision better than any corrective lenses could ever do. The depth perception I gained from this surgery was such a shock; for the first time, I could see in 3-D! I don t have a problem seeing without any type of corrective lenses now, and I can see all of the plants in my house in vivid detail. What a great gift!

Terry. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

For years I wanted to have LASIK surgery but never got the information I needed to pursue the surgery. I am thrilled with the results and only wish I had taken the time to get this information earlier! I couldn t be happier, and I would highly recommend LASIK at Atlantic Eye Institute to anyone. It is the best investment in myself that I have ever made. I feel and look younger and no longer have to deal with wearing glasses!

Sharon. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

I really thought I d scheduled my LASIK just to get rid of those awful glasses, but I m stunned at the positive changes I ve seen in the quality of my life! I would recommend Atlantic Eye Institute in Jacksonville to everyone considering LASIK surgery.

Kim. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

Having had amblyopia and been virtually blind in 1 eye, lifelong, it was amazing to have 20/25 vision with only a small amount of astigmatism after Dr. Shmunes performed Lasik surgery. I would highly recommend this procedure to anyone who experiences amblyopia or severe astigmatism or just wishes to see better without glasses.

Terry. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

To all considering LASIK Just do it! I ve worn glasses and contacts all my life and recently had LASIK at Atlantic Eye Institute. I now see 20/15 in both eyes after only one day! Thanks Atlantic Eye Institute for taking such great care of my eyes and adding to my quality of life. I now can go to the beach or pool with my one-year-old boy, Hudson, and not worry about those glasses and clip-on shades.

Joan. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

The whole experience was wonderful. The doctors and staff worked as a team, from the very first consultation to the actual surgery. They were very thorough in every process and answered all my questions and concerns. I am ecstatic about the new found freedom of seeing 20/20, 20/15 without the aid of eyeglasses or contacts. It s the best investment I ve ever made. It s a dream come true!

Genna. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

I m one day out of my Lasik surgery and I can t say enough good things, not just about the surgery but also the level of care I have received. For anyone considering Lasik, I not only highly recommend the procedure but also Atlantic Eye Institute. Top-notch! Thank you a million for giving me the gift of sight, and for making me feel comfortable through every step of the process.

Jessica. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

Had a scare with a possible retinal problem this morning. Kudos to the answering service, the on-call physician who called me back, and the staff at the beaches office for getting me right in. The answering service even followed up to make sure I had been contacted. All is well thank you for the excellent service (and peace of mind)!

Mary. Ocular Emergency

Just completed my last exam after laser cataract removal and lens implant in both eyes. I highly recommend the entire Atlantic Eye Institute group for your eye care. A special thanks to Dr. Duss and his surgery team. They were the best in giving me back my perfect vision professional, caring, instructive, and friendly. I will soon be 68 years old, but now I have the eyes I had back in my 20s! If you are suffering from cataracts, give these guys a call; you ll be glad you did.

John. Laser Cataract Surgery

An awesome experience! Dr. Diaz and the staff of Atlantic Eye Institute were beyond my expectations. They were knowledgeable, honest, and caring. All my eye measurements were triple checked before the surgery, so I felt confident in the process. All the options were discussed and possible limitations were thoroughly explained. I ended up with LASIK for my vision correction and I couldn t be happier. The procedure was quick and relatively painless and my vision is incredible. It has been a life changing event. I m beyond ecstatic with the results and the process. There aren t words to express the amount of gratitude I have for Atlantic Eye Institute.

Angela. LASIK Laser Vision Correction

From my first appointment until going in for PRK, Dr.Shmunes and the staff were nice, easy to understand and helpful. They made the process less intimidating and made me feel important as a patient. Everything was efficient and professional.

Rusty. LASIK Laser Vision Correction
