No matter what you eat, you worry that chronic heartburn will always be there.
You've tried all the antacids, followed a bland diet, given up on certain foods
completely. But still you wake up in the middle of the night, sometimes with
pain deep in your throat, other times with a sore throat and trouble
breathing, as if you were having an asthma attack. You try to sleep sitting up in a chair, and
realize with dismay: This has been going on for years.
