    When did you first start noticing your first symptoms of this? Did you eat something or do something before the symptoms started ? What are your symptoms ?

      I only ask if you were doing anything before your symptoms began because last year I ate some food I thought was bad, and I made myself vomit several times and the next morning waking up It felt like I had gastritis or a ulcer. Doctors did a endoscopy and said everything looked normal, but seriously for the past year its felt like I have ulcers or gastritis. I have been on the couch in pain for a year and quality of life went down. I have taken that drug Zantac to try and help my symptoms which kind of freaks me out now. The only thing I found that cools my stomach off and takes nausea away is 2-3 drops of organic peppermint oil a day in water. I wish I never made myself puke because I think I strained my stomach to cause the nerves to be super sensitive to stomach acid or something. I think I screwed up my brain stomach axis. Its gotten somewhat better but still there some what. I am a 39 male , and I have had anxiety issues all my life. Idk how much that plays a role in stomach pain sensitivity but I read it does.

    The best you can do is to manage it with antacids, avoid stress and foods that trigger symptoms. I take antacids and milk and avoid spicy and very fatty foods. I was offered surgery to correct the weak sphincter causing the GERD but I refused it because I know it would make things worse for me.
