I get pretty bad heartburn almost every single day. As long as i take Prilosec daily i'm okay. Should i get a endoscopy just in case or no big deal?

In brief: Get checked

If you are talking 2 weeks or so, that's one thing.
If it is more chronic, that'sanother. It's always good to know what you are treating, avoids nasty surprises later. You want to know if you have inflammation, how much, etc., an ulcer, other.
