This does affect your quality of life daily!
I am now on Omeprazole
( don't think it helps, especially my dry mouth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>
throat), low dose Xanax, I have taken fir years and
Simethicone. Actually, at one of my trips to the ER, the doctor suggested that. Another trip to the ER, that doctor prescribed a liquid antacid with Simethicone. My GI doctor told me not to use it saying it would do no good. Well, it is one of the few things that helps!
