Hey guys, I've been dealing with GERD for a few years now and have symptoms that I am not sure what to do. My throat and upper chest burns even when I haven't eaten anything and is worse trying to sleep. My throat becomes stiff and cracks, when I start burning I get hot flashes and sweating under my arms. I can't seem to find any information about my symptoms other than the burning. Does anyone else feel hot when it flares up and how do you get relief to sleep?

    You have to combat the burning your feeling. Are you taking any medication? I would recommend that you do eat, but eat netural foods such as oatmeal for a breakfast in the morning which should help to calm it, drink ginger tea, lemon ginger tea or green tea as well, eat rice which is also bland and netural for your stomach or steamed veggies as a dinner. See if that may help give you a little relieve.

      You cannot drink any tea. It has to be decaf, and drinking ginger tea, green tea or lemon ginger tea should help your stomach, not upset it more.
