More likely, it’s down to a faulty valve at the top of the stomach. When operating normally, the valve prevents the acid leaking upwards from the stomach, but if the valve is too weak this can lead to acid coming up into, or ‘refluxing’ into, the oesophagus which in turn can cause the symptoms of heartburn. Most importantly, don’t go it alone. Make your doctor aware of frequent reflux symptoms.
Acid reflux is also known as GERD, GER, heartburn, and acid indigestion. It refers to when the contents of the stomach, including stomach acid, flows backward and up your esophagus.

Q: My doctor put me on vitamin D3 2,000 mg daily when I stopped taking Fosamax. Everything I read about it says 1,000 mg is enough. I also take Centrum Silver which has 400 mg vitamin D. Am I overdosing on vitamin D3?
A fundoplicaiton surgery followed in May 2010. And my throat pain got worse! I was bedridden for 5 months and couldn’t take the pain anymore of LPR. It was unbearable.
The ER Dr. gave me a psych Dr and they sent me to counseling just to ask me what did I think the stress was that was causing my problem. All I could keep saying was that I wasn’t stressed, that I had unbearable throat/head head and that I couldn’t take it anymore.
