Hi, I'm 16 and started getting acid reflux with heart burn for three days straight, it may have started because I took a beta-blocker for my anxiety, but the reflux was off for about a week before it flared up again, I went to my GP and he prescribed Omeprazole 20mg which I haven't taken yet in fear of the side affects I also heard that these tablets do not help the root cause of acid reflux. What should I do? I have propped pillows to elevate my upper body when I sleep to prevent the heart burn getting worse, but I also get this lump in my throat feeling sometimes... I'm scared that this may never go away, or it might get worse... Should I take a tablet and see what happens? Or should I try and change my diet or something?
