Hi there ryan, and welcome to the GERD forum here on HEALINGWELL. We will be glad to help you the best we can. I would encourage you to look back on older posts, as they hold so much information. And, any questions you have, feel free to ask. Everyone here is friendly, and willing to help when they can. Here is my opinion...seeing a "real" doctor IS your best bet. Don't mess around with these other doctors. You need to see someone who specializes in what you are dealing with. Your doctor will ask you questions, and possibly do tests to find out what is going on. In the meantime, I would suggest taking a liquid antacid if your stomach starts to feel uneasy, and see what that does. Also, watching what you eat, and changing your lifestyle could very well make you feel better as well. Do you smoke, or drink? Do you drink a lot of pop and stuff like that? Are you eating a lot of spicy food? Are you dealing with excess stress in your life? All of these things, plus many more things could factor into making you feel bad. No one wants to get hooked on any kind of prescript ion medication for the rest of their life. You might just need something temporary, or, you may not need anything at all. Sometimes, all it takes is a change of life style. Please do stick with us, and update us on your progress. Also, let me know if you do try the liquid antacid, how it works, and if you go to the doctor, let me know what he has to say. I look forward to hearing more about you soon. Once again, welcome to HEALINGWELL, I wish you all the best. GERD Forum Moderator
