Heartburn: and GERD. You need to see your doctor to be certain. If GERD, consider using a natural supplement called DGL. It is a form of licorice processed to remove the enzyme that can raise blood pressure when licorice is eaten for along time. It can work well when taken before a meal. Peace and good health.
