aka acid reflux? My "episodes" are so bad that I for hrs. and hrs. I hadn't had something like this happen in over 4 months and before that it had been even longer. I think it may of been b/c I ate too late on Weds.- had a chkn. Med. salad. Dunno if it was the dressing/peppery chicken in it or the tomato I hate this shit! I don't like feeling like I'm being dependent on a damn drug. Back to Prevacid I go until my esophagus better. Anyone else have serious issues with this?
