Chest Pains From Acid Reflux
Can losing 3-4lbs help your les I'm overweight & I have constant chest pains from acid reflux had a habit of eating & laying down & chocolate etc...

One can continue eating "less than needed to live on", and her excessive weight will continue to decrease. It's plain physics: if she takes in fewer calories than her body requires, then her body will start burning stored fat to use for calories. ...Read more

Have : Have you had an endoscopy to look at your esophagus? That sounds like very severe heartburn and you should be completely evaluated. I understand your insurance concerns, but please seek out a local clinic (there are free clinics that can often help you so ask for that). If the zegerid isn't working, then you could also add carafate which works a different way (it coats the esophagus/stomach) which may help you.

Please have a medical evaluation by a GI doctor as soon as you can. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
