I started getting symptoms about
6 months ago. So I brought them up to my GI and he said that it sounds like acid reflux. I never had the burning feeling in the throat - maybe a lot of post nasal drip at night though and clearing of the throat, the painful lump feeling in the chest, nausea and stomach pain. He put me on Prilosec otc and it took care of the problem within 3 days. I very rarely have difficulty anymore since being on Prilosec maybe occasional evening burn which Tums relieves. My GI did say that if it persists (breakthru heartburn), especially the nausea (which I get frequently), that he is going to do something - he didn't say what though.
Thanks Tammy :)
