Originally diagnosed over 5 years ago with severe GERD. 2 years of prevacid and doctor recomended surgery. I said no and within a year after that my symptoms vanished. I attributed GERD in my case to working nights drinking too much and poor diet, problem is now my GERD has returned

:-) I know exactly what you mean. I have acid reflux and I hate it. You can not enjoy anything. I woke up this morning feeling funny. It is like a rushing feeling in your chest. Does anyone have these feelings. So I took some Mylanta to calm me down. I do take prescripition Pepcid, which is not strong enough. I took Nexium but it made my iron so low I had to get off it. Does anyone have any suggestion on how to feel better. I am over weight some. I try not to eat after 4:00 pm. I do drink rootbeer. I think it is time to get off those because I think that is what is keeping my weight up. I need some suggestion on how to get my reflux back in control Help!!!!!
