Not sure...: Chronic acid reflux (gerd) is very common. 50% of patients suffering from gerd can control symptoms well enough with diet to get off medications. The other 50% have to take them long term - perhaps lifelong. You are young and might want to consider anti-reflux surgery if you are a candidate. See your GI doctor. Good luck!
