Hi I am new to the forum. I have suffered from acid reflux desease since i was 9.
I am not always able to afford my prescriptions and I am so addicted to sweets (sugar causes MORE acid reflux)
So i am no stranger to feeling like i am going to die from choking from acid reflux so I make sure I always have Tums near me (kitchen, bedroom,purse, car etc.) When acid comes up I remain calm and chew 3 to 4 tums quickly. I know it feels like you can't swallow at first but the quicker you break them up and swallow the quicker you feel relief. Bread or bananas help absorb the acid too. Make sure you dont go to long without eating either because that causes acids to build up in your stomach. when my stomachs at it's worst i eat a few Tums before going to bed.
But of course this is only emergency relief. You need see your physician for the best solution.
