I normally hang outr in the Crohns forum but I suffer from GERD also... I was diagnosed when I was 19 which was 10 years ago... I take Nexium 40 mg.. I have been on Aciphex, Protonix, Prilosec, Prevacid and more I am sure... I have to change every year or two... I just have a feeling of choking on food when mine flares... It is tough to swallow.. And nausea...
Hope this helps..
