Suffering from this with major vomitting is not neccessary. Nor is the pain, that comes with it. I have been put on High Blood Pressure Medication, that calms the spasms that result in the reflux action. This has made life for me so much more better. If you haven't also try Nexium, this cuts the manufacture of the stomach acid and calms this as well. I have been dealing with all this for at least 20 years and a good Gastroentologist is really worth it. This Doctor can help greatly in helping you live life in a much better way. Good luck!
