Congratulations! Sounds like GERD!
Hang in there. There is plenty of help and information out there and here.
I don't think you don't need the emergency room right now unless your bleeding or in pain.
First, find a good gastroenderologist in your area who can work you up and find out how bad it is. You may just need more medication.
If he mentions surgery there is two kinds of surgery.
One is taking the top of your stomach and wrapping the top around your esophagus to strengthen the LES called a Nissen.
The other surgery is the Esophyx procedure. They go down your throat with a special endoscope and basically staple the top edges of your stomach around your esophagus.
You can find both on the internet for further research.
I'm chosing the Esophyx procedure. I'm working it out now to see the lead doctor in this area and hopefully have my surgery before the year is up.
