A 36-year-old female asked:
Why would i develop heartburn after starting ppis? Had severe allergies/asthma since child, was told (despite allergy testing) that it might be GERD

Heartburn: Why were you started on ppis in the first place? Given your history of allergies and esophageal symptoms this raises the suspicion of a condition called eosinophilic esophagitis that has symptoms that may overlap with gerd.
