I tend to experience GERD symptoms when I get stressed. I have a really busy schedule right now with full time work and full time school and I can't do much to change it until the semester ends. I was doing fine for the first few weeks, but the stress got to me last week and the GERD has been straight hell for me. My stomach hurts every morning and after I eat, it is painful to swallow food or drink, and I am constantly wheezing and coughing to the point of almost gagging at times. My tongue is also sore as if I ate a lot of sour candy or something. Is this common?
I have some Protonix that helped before, so I just started taking that.
Any other OTC meds that may work better? I need some quick relief.
