I think you should live in Lafayette Square or Soulard area.

See a doctor. You may have multiple issues.

For me, diet, no matter how bland, did not work. All of the famous PPIs - Nexium, Prilosec, Prevacid, and generic omeprazole worked for me. Right now, the cheapest if Prevacid from Amazon at 0.23/tablet.

Don't let it get out of control. The chest pains that can come as a result of GERD are more unpleasant that the stomach pains.
