Hi,

I'm suffering an episode of gord and just cannot get comfortable this evening. Sitting or lying in any position does not relieve my chest pain or pain between my shoulder blades. I have taken gaviscon and constantly burping but nothing is helping. Are there any immediate remedies to relieve the tightness

    I try one of 2 things, a large glass of fizzy water or cold milk. Does not always work, I too am suffering badly today myself and taken 40mg esomeprazole and 1 ranitadine nothing helping so off to get some milk, some say milk is not good but that or plain yoghurt seems to take away the sore feeling and any relief is good.

    A PPI if you have access to it, otherwise Gaviscon. Then I rest at an angle and after about 30mins it goes off for me

    A can of zero coke left to go a bit flat and sipped over a period of about an hour helps me when having a really bade flare up
