Acupuncture for Silent Reflux?

I'm pretty frustrated, as I'm sure that most of you are as well.

I have had my best succes by drinking alkaline water to neutralize the pepsin. My asthma symptoms went away but came back. I can't help but believe that it was because I was following my Dr's orders and I took Pepcid. HolyCrap, that made it worse. I could feel the vapors coming up my esophagus. It took about a week to get back to where I was. Not that I was feeling 100%, but a lot better than when on an H2 blocker.

Anyway, nothing else seems to be working, so I am going in for acupuncture.

Has anyone had any success with this tx?
