Something like Nexiam would be much more effective than Rennies - ask your doctor for a prescription for a "PPI". You may have a hiatus hernia and this can be confirmed by a gastroscopy (fibre optic camera - see http://www.mayoclinic.co.za/gastro_intestinal_unit.htm ) . Operation is not always necessary, medical treatment can be given unless the hernia is really big.
