    Hello Concerned Mom,

    This is the Reflux Mom-not sure how to answer your question except to recommend that you go back to the primary care doctor for advice. From there, the doctor can guide you to the right treatment or a referral to a specialist. Do not ignore the symptoms-you have been dealing with these symptoms for a long time.
