i think i might have that. Been really bothering me the last two weeks or so. Sometimes it burns so bad I have to sit down for a second. Really been considering seeing a doctor if it doesn't stop soon. Weird coincidence that you happen to post this...

yeah I have it.....sucks! got to the point where even drinking water felt like razor blades going down my esophagus...firts time it really started hurting (not just regular heartburn feeling) I didn't know what the hell was going on. What did your doc RX?

You know it's funny....
I had acid reflux big time while I was going out with my last GF, and less than a week after I dumped her it was gone and hasn't come back!

I had it for a while. Dr prescribed Tagamet, and between that and a low-fat diet, a few months later, everything was fixed. No more problems.
It's important to get acid reflux fixed ASAP, because if your esophagus gets blitzed with stomach acid over a long enough time, it can become cancerous. Not good.

I was perscribed Nexium.. and what a coincidence.. it just happens to be the drug we make! sooo I get it for free!!
free is good.. but this crap hurts..
for the past two days Im walking around and everytime I would take a breath it would hurt... almost like chest pains so Im like what the hell!!
turns out its acid reflux and its cause by a couple things but stress is one of them..
see what you men do!!

Ya, you need a new doc.
I think Tagamet is now OTC, try some of that stuff and see if it helps any.

As silly of a thing as acid reflux may seem, it is a serious problem,that if left untreated can cause long term damage..
