Hi Vicky,
I suggest that you consult with your GP first, after which it might be necessary for you to be referred to a specialist gastro-intestinal tract (GIT) specialist. You should not have to experience what you are, and a physical examination via a gastroscopy might be indicated. If medication cannot correct your problem, there are various surgical procedures (eg, Nissen repair/fundoplication)that will correct your reflux. Get to your GP now, okay.
