How can chest pain and acid reflux be treated?

I have acid reflux that is so bad I am unable to lie down. I have a bad chest infection and my fibro doctor told me never to take prednisone again. Unfortunately, I picked up a bad chest infection and Urgent Care gave me script for Aumentin and prednisone. I have chest pain and do not wan my reflux to get worse. What can I substitute for prednisone and will Augmentin made my reflux wore as well?

instead, try to regularise your meal timings, have dinner 3 hours before bed.. eat small meals.. don't eat too much at one time, avoid chocolates, tomatoes, spices,alcohol etc.. sleep with head high position or right lateral. to get good results have aloe Vera juice twice daily..
