Many causes: A referral to a gastroenterologist may be necessary to rule out physiological/anatomical causes such as hiatal hernia or low muscle tone as the causes of intractable heartburn. You should also be aware that many psychotropic medications can cause or exacerbate heartburn in a small number of individuals. FYI, tricyclic antidepressants have H2 receptor blocking actions (similar to ranitidine).

Lots of Rx's!: The last two are aimed at your 'burning' but if you've actually had some tissue damage from the duration of irritation, it may take time to heal. Ask for diet recommendations. Try a sip or two of a Tbsp of good apple cider vinegar in 2 oz water w/ a pinch of baking soda. It works like magic for me! CBT Tx can optimize the drug Tx. Seek a referral! Best!
