yesterday i had terrible acid reflex while at work, so i have a feeling me not feeling great has something to do with that. I've also not eaten much due tot he acid reflex in teh last 24 hours. It's just frustrating that some things I eat and would never expect to have them make me sick do make me sick:( For instance, I just ate some ramen noodles and now i've got acid reflex...seriously, ramen noodles? a guy at work suggested it's the city water. lol I should go to the doctor over break about it though because having the inside of your throating burn is a terrible terrible terrible feeling. Lucky i've not thrown up but sometimes I wish I would in hopes it would stop the burning. I'm willing to bet that would make things worse though.

I'm so freaking tired but can't sleep cuz my stomach hurts and my throating is burning. I gotta be at work at 10 am tomorrow; hopefully I'll be able to make it cuz I should make good money again. College kids apparently order a ton of delivery pizza on finals week.


anybody else suffer from this dreaded problem? if so is there anything I can do to make it go away faster or something like that?

after an hour of playing speedy bubbles (and getting ridicloulsy good at it) it's now 4 am and i'm just starting to feelit going away. There's no way I'll be able to work tomorrow. If all I had to do was sit and do officee work there'd be no problems, but I gotta draive all day and there's no way i'm compromising my saftery.

well it's 4:45 and I'm still feeling it:( damn stupid body of mine. I'm thinking about sleeping sitting up cuz when i lay down it gets worse. Ive been reading up on it and apparently my esophagus relazes and opens up when it's not supposed to, allowing stomach acid go up it; I can see now why it's a big deal to have it. The last thing I want is a hole eaten through my esophagus by rogue stomach acid. i did find some leftover pills i forgot to take from when my doctor mave me a ton of them for free; I'm definately going to be taking them daily agian, when i run out i'm buying some nexium or prilosec OCT.

GERD is a pain... literally.

One good remedy is 1/2 tbs of baking soda in glass of water... its your old fashioned bromo but it does the job. Gives me the burps sometimes, but it will neutralize the acid.

I have horrible GERD (course I have a hiatal hernia that should have been repaired years ago) and take medicine for it daily. I get priolsec over here for it, but back in the world I highly recommend nexxium...

try the bromo.. it will at least let you sleep... It doesn't taste that bad..

If you have $17 go to a pharmacy or walmart type place and pick up some Prilosec OTC. It helped me with ulcers and helps my brother with acid reflux.
