I have just started with the reflux. I had it years ago but them some of the OTC meds has helped it. I had an Endoscopy years ago and was told I had a narrow esophagus. So we are doing the procedure next week. They can stretch it if it needs to be. I am a retired nurse and worked with patients that had this done and it has really helped them. Also make sure you put your bed up on blocks at the top or sleep on two pillows, this does help. I got an up/down bed about 12 years ago and that has really helped.
