I haven't actually been diagnosed with GERD but i'm pretty sure i have it. I've had problems with acid for years now and have been prescribed Ranitide by my doctor. This normally helps with my usual symptoms, excess acid, wind etc. Tonight, however, i'm experiencing a new symptom... i've got a horrible tingling/burning sensation in my throat and it makes me feel as though i need to gag or vomit. I haven't vomited but the tingling is keeping me awake. I've taken my Ranitide tablet but that has done absolutely nothing. I have a big day tomorrow and i really need to get some sleep! Has anyone got any suggestions as to what else i could take/do to relieve my symptoms and help me drift off? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated... i'm getting desperate! Thanks so much.
