    To Ashton: Pain prior to a meal is concerning for peptic ulcer disease. He should return to his physician for an evaluation at which time the need for an endoscopy can be addressed.

    To ashton_deardlocks:
    I'm not a doctor, but I had the same problem.

    I added 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to a reused 16-oz glass bottle filled with water, some honey and some lemon.

    I took a couple sips whenever I was feeling the burn, and it would go away in like 30 seconds, and stay away.

    The only important ingredient above is apple cider vinegar, so mix with it with whatever. Another mixer of mine is juice. Also, if you don't want to go to the trouble of mixing...

    You might want to look into a sleeping disorder known as Upper Airwar Restriction Syndrome. You can google the research done by a Pulmonologist from Stoney Brook.

    Be well,

    Hi Dr.
    My name is Ashton and my to-be husband is Ryan. He has constant daily indigestion and heartburn, GERD is being treated currently with i believe Prilotec OCT (sorry for spelling) and I want better ways to help him, he gets pain when hungry and after eating, we stray from pills. If you have any advice we'd very much appreciate it.
    Thank you, Ashton
