I have been feeling so bad lately with Gerd.  I feel sick to my stomach.  I have not been eating at night but everynight I am jerked out of a deep sleep with the feeling that something like a freight train is moving up towards my throat. I stand up and swallow and things get back to normal after a while.  This is so scary.  Anyone know what I am talking about? Now, I don't have this if I take tums.  I do sleep slightly propped up though.  I have taken tums for a long time and I wonder about the long term usuage.  I have read that it is bad for your kidneys yet my gyno told me to take them everyday for the calcium.  My reg doc says they are completely safe.  I just don't know.  I do know I do not want to take PPI's though!
 
Any input would be greatly appreciated! yeah
