Check for GERD: I suggest an abdominal ultrasound and tests for GERD. You can empirically start OTC Prilosec, Nexium (esomeprazole) or Zegerid; however, you will need to be examined and evaluated for reflux, gastritis, and H. pylori disease. Please call your physician and also ask for an abdominal ultrasound.
