My Acid Reflux Is Killing Me It Hurts A lot Medicine Doesn't Help

My acid reflux is killing me the pills I took didn't help the water isn't helping, peptobismol isn't helping, and it hurts a lot. Symptoms pain in my upper chest acid taste in my mouth pain going into my left side of my stomach and left breast wont go away!

Answer

I'm sorry you are having such a hard time of things with regards to your reflux. While Pepto is considered to help with heartburn, it isn't generally discussed when it comes to reflux control.

You should consult with your doctor about your reflux and what he suggests as a plan for you. One of the problems with reflux is that the symptoms can be similar for heart problems, ulcers, gall bladder issues, etc. You don't want to treat reflux if in fact it's one of the other issues. Your doctor should be able to help you get this figured out.
