On my dad's side of the family.
Started showing itself when I was in my early 20's.
My first instinct was to eat to get it to calm down. It'd calm down for a little while then flare back up.
I've since learned that my Dad has it and have been treating it.
Just one night out of the blue had severe pain in the chest and felt that I couldn't breathe.It felt like a heartattack but it was just the beginning of years of severe heartburn.
Doctor's opinion was that my heartburn was due to gallbladder stones.I had my gall bladder removed...
I found out last year that I have acid reflux disease. I thought I was having a heart attack...because I was having all the signs and symptoms. I am now taking Nexium on a daily basis to help me battle it. I have less attacks now, but they do come on strong every once in awhile.
10 years ago. I noticed it when I would go to bed. I would drink water, lay down, and then feel intense burning in my gut. Over time, I would get it during the day. The pain would get so bad it felt like I was getting crushed. I couldn't breathe. I am on medication now, but that...
