I have had alot of problems recently with this. This past weekend and Tuesday I was so sick. I even broke out into a sweat which I have never done. The knot feeling in my throat and the heartburn has been exscruciating. It wakes me up in the night. I elevate my head, watch what I eat at night especially too close to bedtime. Its awful. For the past few weeks I have been on Nexium. I ran out midweek last week was feeling better and thought I won't worry about taking it for a while. That was a mistake because it was then that I got really bad. Please help on any other ways to help alleviate the problem. Is it true this can eventually cause Cancer? And how or what should I do to stay ahead of this problem before it gets that bad? Thanks in advance for any recommendations.
