Hello Sean, and welcome to healingwell. I am happy you have found us, but sorry you are having issues!
First off...I wonder if you are able to get health insurance anytime soon. I am not trying to pry into your personal business, it's just I know what it's like to go without health insurance, and it's scary, and obviously, not good. I am not preaching. People have different reasons for not being covered, and generally, it is not something someone chooses to do...ya know?
Sherry is right about
the Prilosec OTC directions. I cannot tell you what to do when it comes to medication though.
I know this is advice you may not want, but you need to cut back on the citrus, and even the chocolate. Also, I would suggest reading a post by me called...ways to minimize GERD symptoms. There is some useful information on there that might give you some relief.
Also, a famous question, do you smoke? If so, quitting is a great idea...again, not to preach!
Anyway, I do hope you stick around. Healingwell is a great place for support and information. If you have time, read old posts as well, they hold a lot of information!
Again, welcome to healingwell!
