How to say grammatically correct that I had a problem, but then it's gone when I tried a recommendation:

I had the same problem. Thanks, recommendation above helps me!


I had the same problem. Thanks, recommendation above helped me!

  • Does the recommendation (you need an article) continue to help you, or was it a one-off problem which the recommendation has fixed so it will never recur? – Andrew Leach Jul 25 '19 at 8:17

This has the correct meaning:

I had the same problem. Thanks, the recommendation above has helped me!

Because if you used helps me it would mean that the recommendation helps you periodically for some period of time.

  • Did you intend to pick neither of OP's options? (i.e. is there a reason why the sentence has to have "has" added to it?) And, as @AndrewLeach pointed out, the word "recommendation" definitely requires an article. – A C Jul 25 '19 at 8:37
  • Yes, I did intend to do it this way, at first I changed it also to recommendations, hence the lack of "the", but after changing it back to the singular form I forgot to add it. – TK-421 Jul 25 '19 at 8:58
