If you think you are having an issue, particularly if it is made worse by Alcohol, you might want to see your doctor to rule out any really severe or serious issues. Once you have done that, you can research this site to find out information that will help you ask all the right questions to make sure you are able to manage your care. Online sites are great for information, but should never take the place of the sound advice and care of your doctor.
You can read about GERD here in the overview and you can check your symptoms here in the symptoms database. Once you have seen your doctor, if he prescribes medication for GERD, you can read about them here in the drugs database. You can also research treatments available and alternatives here in the treatments database.
Hope this helps. Please stay in touch and let us know how you are doing!Vicki M
