I also watch my diet very carefully, am on the spring water recommended by Northern Joe but I think everyone is different because I am still having lots of pain. Took Losec many years ago for an ulcer and that helped that but for this GERD they've given me Zantac, followed by Domperidome, followed by Nexium,folowed by Pariet. Along with this I also took liquid Gaviscon 4 times a day, sometimes more. Nothing helped and I am a very careful eater, don't eat at night, don't eat deep fried, no tea, coffee or soda, sleep with my bed elevated, etc. All the things I've heard to do. So, it must depend on your body or something else unknown at the momnent. Yes, Boolie, my feeling is also, Grrrr!! How long can this go on.
