I get heartburn every night. Approx. once a week, it gets so bad, I throw up. I have tried so many things, it's ridiculous. I practically LIVE on Tums, Rolaids and OTC stuff.Lately, I have a cough that won't quit, too. I'm wondering if I might be damaging my throat with all the acid.I notice that if I turn over at night, even if it's not bothering me at the time, that it immediately gets bad! Since I have no health insurance, I can't just go to to doctor. I've tried Prilosec, too, and for about 2 weeks, it was great!!! Then things went south again. I can't stand this crap. I haven't had a decent night's sleep in ages! I need some sleep!
