I took the over-the-counter for 2 days, had a slice of pizza, and
had the WORST heartburn. I stopped the Prilosec, and
for a couple days - nothing. Then I stopped taking everything and for the next few days felt pretty good. I saw a naturopath, changed my diet completely, elevated my bed, lost weight, etc. About a week later, the sore throat started, along with a cough, and the choking sensation again. I saw an ENT, and he looked through my nose and down my throat.
