    I have had acid reflux for the past 8 years and had been able to control it w different other-the-counter meds and the ultimately a prescription.  I recently had an endoscopy - the results were normal. 6 weeks ago I had food poisioning & this then set off the following: I have unrelenting acid reflux. Burning sensation in throat going down the esophogus; pressure to squeezing pain under my breasts which often radiates to my back as well as the taste of metal or chlorine in my mouth.  I sometimes cough several times a day. I am being treated twice a day with Protonix; 1/2 hour before a meal in the am and once again in the evening before dinner.  In addition I find that I need to chew Maalox tablets sometimes as frequently as 6 - 8 per day. What in addition to the treatment my doctor has prescribed can I do. My sleeping pattern is for 7 hours w a sleeping pill.
