Doctor can evaluate: If it is reflux (heartburn), one can try antacids like Maalox, Mylanta, or Tums. There are also acid-blocking medications like Pepcid (famotidine). But, such symptoms may be other things instead of simple reflux. The patient could have esophagitis, H. pylori infection, heart or lung disease, anxiety, etc... It's best to have a doctor evaluate, and if it's only heartburn, the doctor can offer acid blockers. ...Read more

GERD can certainly cause the symptoms you describe but I would go to an urgent care or your doctor to be sure that is what you are dealing with. ...Read more
