  I have had GERD issues for years but for some reason the last week or so I have had very little relief and that all to familiar burning in the throat and chest. I was wondering if being in the heat makes this worse or not. Its been over 100 for a few days and I have never noticed in the past having above normal issues during the summer before. It could just be a coincidence, and I have been dissecting every little thing lately.

Hey Raydio, I've never experienced this, but I've heard of it. Maybe the heat relaxes the LES more?

One factor I didn't think about until just now is I have been taking muscle relaxers for my back. I think that may have something to do with it??? Not sur if it affects my nexium either. Any thoughts?

muscle relaxers could be the culprit, ask your doctor about it
Diagnosed GERD, no other medical conditions (this one is enough)
