Maybe someone who has spend a lot of time is the forum has a better idea of how many cases have come through here that have found a solution.
Josh, i have had GERD for years, and finally decided to address it. I tried Zantac, Prescription Prilosec, etc. It all worked but each time my doc tried to wean me off it, it would eventually come back. I could go 2 days without meds, and on the third day it showed up again.
Finally i lost 28 pounds, and changed my eating habits. That did the trick. Hope it helps, not sure if it applies to your situation
