Treat pnd: I would treat the post nasal drip with a nasal steroid or antihistamine. Surgery would be the last option and actually could make things worse.

No: That is a drastic solution. See an ENT dr. And get the post nasal drip under control.

Yes but: Tums (calcium carbonate) is unlikely to be the best treatment for reflux. Talk to your doctor.
