The pain in my esophagus hurts really bad, but when I sit up straight and have good posture it gets better.

Does good posture help heal the esophagus?

Also, I am thinking of trying to desensitize myself on prilosec. I tried to take a 4th and it still bothered me so I'm thinking of trying just a tiny bit for a while than move up.

Anyone have any advice on how much I should try for how long, and if I should do it at all?

I don't know if you have GERD or not but good posture does help:

I read this about it:

a slouched posture is an important factor contributing to GERD. With a slouched posture there is no straight path between the stomach and esophagus; muscles around the esophagus go into a spasm. Gas and acidity get blocked in the spasm, causing coughing and other asthma-like symptoms.
