    You gotta take care of it bro because it will get worse. Also, have you been tested for a stomach ulcer? Very common with people with Gerd but treatable.

    I saw my doc today and she put me on new medication that is much stronger. It's called pantoprazole. Dont let it go as far as i did bro, go to the doctor!

    I haven't. But I've changed my diet. To be honest, it's not helping. I think I'm scared of what the doc is gonna tell me.

    It's been a constant dull pain with an occasional flare up. I am also starting to feel a difference in my esophagus

    I tried that too bro. Self help and research will yield nothing. You gotta go to the doc bro. It will get worse not better.

    I've been taking the omeprazole. Is that stuff you're taking better?

    Which foods did you cut out, and which foods did you add to your diet?

    I've got too much stomach acid. I was prescribed omeprazole, but I don't like taking prescription meds. So I control it with Pepcid Complete, and avoiding greasy/spicy foods.
