In brief: Reflux
Chronic acid reflux is best helped by keeping track of any foods that exacerbate the reflux and avoid them. Alcohol, chocolate and a variety of foods we take for granted that make reflux worse.
Otc tagamet, Zantac (ranitidine) can help with symptoms. Evaluation by a gastroenterologist is helpful to rule out conditions such as barrett's esophagitis which need to be treated more agressively.
