Hello I am new to the site and am looking forward to communicating with other people out there who are suffering from GERD related symptoms.

I was diagnosed with GERD in 2007 and have generally never felt that poorly. However recently my heartburn has me very concerned. Doctor just increased my omeprazole from 20mg to 40mg and told me to basically drink a shot glass of maalox when heartburn occurs.......

Recently I feel like there is a large gold ball in my chest, but only at random times of the day, usually afternoon to early evening.

I recently purchased a book titled Dropping Acid, and I am following the advice therein, but wanted to reach out and learn from others......
