    Hi, is this just your first time with Acid Flux (acute) or is it chronic that's getting worse?

    My reason for asking is my chronc condition is getting worse, despite 'lifestyle' changes as the other answerers mention. I am seeing my doctor next week.

    The numb or painful swallowing is due to acid or bile "burning" your gullet. Occassionally this is not bad, but over many years can develop into a few very nasty illnesses.

    Hopefully we've helped....

    This is a natural program that you can try to cure your acid reflux

    Acid reflux disease, also known as gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD), occurs due to the coexistence of several medical and lifestyle conditions. Physiological factors that trigger GERD include lower esophageal sphincter (LES) hypotonia (the gradual weakening of the LES), along with retrograde flow of stomach contents into the esophagus, and the level of sensitivity of the esophageal mucus to the reflux content.

    Acid reflux can be cured with a more alkaline diet that requires a lot more fruit and vegetables.

    Yogurt and other probiotics often help as well.

    too much acid in the stomach go to the doctors or take medicine from the chemist but it will help if you don't eat spicy food or any acidic foods. Long term it needs treating as it may be an ulcer
