I used to deal with it, for about ten years. Once starting Primal in early February it was like some threw the off switch on the GERD machine.
I had been taking prilosec daily with an occasional Pepcid complete at night when there would be breakthrough. There were plenty of nights when I would have to sleep propped up on pillows.
It's gotten so much better. I still take a Prilosec on the weekends cause most if not all of my 20% is on the weekends.
I have had one or two times when I had to take something at night but that was because of too much red wine.
Main triggers: Wheat (removed from diet), fried food (removed from diet), tomato sauces (I think this has gotten better), alcohol esp red wine and whiskeys.
I used to have to stock up prior to any kind of travel, but thankfully that's not the case anymore.
