Brief Answer:
Advanced therapies available

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

You do not have to suffer for so long years now. There are advanced therapies available which will help along with your life style modification.

I suggest you should get an Endoscopy done by a Gastroenterologist and enquire how to end this malady. Antacid is not good over long term use as they can cause alkalosis.
