Well after years of dealing with burning, burping, gross tastes in mouth I finally went to the Doctor yesterday and it was determined that I in fact do have Acid Reflux disease. I simply produce too much acid for my stomach to hold. This is a very common problem and I guess I am not surprised at this diagnosis since my dad and even my mom suffer from the same thing. I praise God for my wife who urged me to take care of this. The doctor seemed very encouraged that I am addressing this now rather than when I have a even more complicated disease (ie. cancer..) So I am taking Aciphex right now (same thing as NEXIUM) and will continue this for 18 days. After that I will hopefully be able to transition to something a little less powerful (like PRILOSEC). I guess I am getting older. Oh well, praise God I still have my brain! Ha.
