This is why we all buy burp cloths and bibs before we have a baby. But very few have true reflux disease.

Everyone will need to closely review past and current history, medical conditions, any "asthma" like symptoms, upper respiratory infections, pneumonia, etc.. Working together they can come up with an evaluation and treatment plan. ...Read more

Gerd or "silent reflux" from forward head posture? If i fix the fhp will the GERD symptoms go away? 7 months of this and no signs of getting better.

Unlikely: Posture is not likely to be the problem. It may be related to hyperacidity, hiatal hernia or other GI problem. You should definitely see a GI doctor and have this assessed since it may be as simple as having helicobacter pylori infection treated with antibiotics. Good luck and feel better soon. ...Read more
