    Hi you should not look at it so disheartedly. I am 45 and on one kidney and suffer from swallowing disorder and acid reflux has to be officially diagnosed yet. By changing my life style I have improved my symptoms by 50 percent. As long as you stay healthy and avoid culprits you will be fine.

    May God bless all of us with good health.

    From the post I assume you're distressed, I completely understand, but you need to take a breath and look at this problem differently.

    There are many ways to alleviate reflux, as well as different potential causes. It sucks but with the correct doctor I am sure you can find what works for you to help alleviate your symptoms. I think you would be seen urgently before it would even get close to being fatal, you just need to work with your doctor.

    I am 21 and suffer with agonising reflux. Make sure you focus on your mental health, stress and depression only amplifies the pain from reflux and makes you feel worse. Discovering it is reflux is the most important step, it took doctors over a year to realise for me it wasn't anxiety but was a hiatal hernia. I hope you find a cure that works for you, please post back with your progress.

    Hi stiffers im really sorry to hear you have the same issues. I am kind of shocked that hital hernia can happen at 21. Do you take acid blockers?
