Likely GERD: If your PCP did an evaluation on you and has cleared you from a cardiac possibility, then it is most likely GERD. You should take the Protonix (pantoprazole) daily as prescribed. If no relief in 4-8 weeks after taking it, then consider speaking to your doctor again about further evaluation. Best wishes.
