Just joined the group and I can feel your pain! Sounds just like Gerd, however you can never be too careful

I was diagnosed with Gerd 3 years ago and tried Tecta twice a day and now am on Nexium which worked up until a few weeks ago.

I have terrible pressure between my breasts and am hardly eating anything as I am not sure what's causing the problem right now.

Going to try 1/2 tsp.of baking soda in an 8 oz. glass of water to see if that neutralizes the acid.....wish me luck. If this doesn't work right away I will look further.

I've been guilty of over dosing on chocolate and fatty foods lately...holidays and all:) I suspect this is the culprit !!! Now that I'm behaving the gerd still won't go away, I guess this is what they call an "episode"

I think I will go back on my Digestive Enzymes and lose the coffee as I do have trouble breaking down my food and that might help overall.

Hope my thoughts help.
