A couple of things come to mind. First I would kindly like to recommend that you make an appointment with a GI physician to be evaluated for GERD. Your physician may be able to diagnose GERD history alone or he may also suggest tests and procedures used to diagnose GERD.
Treatment for heartburn and other signs and symptoms of GERD usually begins with over-the-counter medications that control acid. If you don't experience relief within a few weeks, your doctor may recommend prescription medications.
I wish you well and hope you keep on posting here with us.
