Do yall suffer from this bullshit? How do you keep it under control? I fucked up and took a ghost pepper hot wing challenge over a year ago. Had problems ever since. I know retarded but who would have thought 6 wings would cause permenant damage? Anyway I know this is a VERY common problem people have. How do you keep it under control? Sometimes hard to sleep and very uncomfortable.

Nexium every day for many years. And a Zantac 150 at night. Lose weight, sleep on your left side.

Smoking or alcohol are horrible for it. Once I get it under control the occasional beer is fine.

Ever have an upper GI scope procedure? That'll tell what's really going on.

But for me, the Nexium and Zantac combo works good. Along with losing weight and left side sleeping.

I have to watch out for black pepper. That puts me in pain for weeks. Ghost pepper will tear the shit out of anyone's esophagus. Scarring might be an issue causing that stomach top sphincter to no longer close tight. I have a hiatial hernia that causes a lot of GERD issues.

PPI's and antacids will be your friend from now on. And an upper GI scope about once every 5 years.

Been dealing with this shit for years. One thing I just tried is the antacid chews versus tums. The generic from Kroger grocery stores are Awesome. 1/3 the cost of rolaids chews and 100 times faster than tums. Plus they taste like candy not chalk. Plus Zantac 75 twice aday and adjust your diet.

I've had it for years. Omaziprile whatever it's called from the local pharmacy has done me wonders. Diet what I drink. Doesn't seem to matter. If I don't take my pill I get heartburn. After years of the doctors visits it seems to be a normal every day pill for me. If I don't take my pill for awhile even bottled water makes it worse. Thru my research I'm starting to wonder if it is t the acidy foods we eat. But haven't broke down to go on a non acidy diet. Since even water seems to make it worse for me. But over the counter pill and I'm all better. Can eat anything I want with no problems. Omaziprile benzapine I think it is? Cheaper than Prilosec. And was prescribed by my doctor for a long time. Then it became over the counter so the insurance wouldn't cover it anymore. I've lived with it for 20 years now. And no doctor has told me the root cause of it.

Thanks for the info. I do not smoke or drink at all. I learned the hard way about black pepper. Holy shit black pepper fucks me up for literally days.

I actually thought I was having heart problems and the doctor ran a bunch of tests and found nothing. A different doctor diagnosed me with gerd and I am in the process of gettin an appointment with a specialist for a scope.

I really want to avoid taking medicine for the rest of my life. I know the ghost pepper extract fucked me up because I could feel it. Litterally felt like my stomach and esophagus was coming apart. That was may of 2014. I really fucked up but oh well.

Fix diet, quit smoking if you smoke. LOTS of fiber, problem goes away. Yogurt is good too if you can handle it.

I have been suffering with a reflux induced cronic cough for years, finally started seeing a specialist. Had the endoscopy a few months ago. Lots of irritation but fortunately no Barrett's. I have taken every med they make. The heartburn is under control now, but still have a nasty cough, sometimes it is so bad I actually vomit. Next step is a tube down my throat, for 24 hours to get a PH reading of my stomach. So yes I feel your pain.
