Dr. David :

I am sorry you are having these symptoms.

Dr. David :

you need to see your GP and talk about your heart burn symptoms.

Dr. David :

you might need more than just antacids to help calm down your heart burn.

Dr. David :

you might need stronger medications.

Dr. David :

and also to change your diet to avoid spicy food, and alcohol and tomato sauce, and fried foods and oily foods and black pepper

Dr. David :

all of which can worsen your acid reflux.

Dr. David :

also you need to be tested for H Pylori bacteria by your doctors to check for this infection in your stomach which can worsen acid production.

Dr. David :

let me know if you have questions.
