    well ive been suffering from GERD for a while now, but im just now receiving help for it. At first I though I just had regular heartburn but its much much worse than that! The pain is intense and frequent. What are some of the treatment plans you guys are on?

    Hi. I know how you feel! I discovered I hace avid reflux about 1 month ago. I can eat anything. I went to the dr and off course gave me omeprazole. I took it and it made me feel better for a few day BUT I cant stop taking it. I feel like a drug addict...Please don't take it. You can try something natural first. im new to this gerd too but I regret I took that medicine.

    What meds have you tried taking so far? Zantac really works for me. I suggest that you also avoid starchy food as well as eating late at night.
