I've had GERD before and the doctor said it was probably from drinking and smoking cigarettes. He put me on Phenergan and OTC Prilosec ....worked great. The Phenergan was too expensive, so he put me on Reglan and it worked just as well. I still smoke but don't drink at all and don't take anything anymore for it.

Definitely get checked out, and if it is GERD, have it treated. Chronic GERD can definitely lead to more serious diseases like esophageal cancer.
