I have been having GERD for 18 years now. Nine years prior to being diagnosed w Crohn's. I'm on Nexium 40 2x1 but that's because of my long-standing disease. Avoid chocolate, caffeine, citrus, tomato and tomato sauce, fresh peppermint, strawberry, spices, very hot or very cold food. These all aggravate GERD.
