Hi there. It could be GERD... Could be something else too... Not a doc, don't know for sure... Since you saw a doc for it before Christmas, I would recommend seeing your doc again since it didn't go away. One thing the doc will want to know is how often you are having heartburn. Maybe keep a symptom journal so you can tell the doc exactly what is going on.
Do you get any relief by taking antacids?
My GERD is giving me way more trouble than my UC right now, so I thought I'd check out this forum to see what's going on :)
