How are you today?
I thought I'd open this discussion so that our members living with gastro-oesophageal reflux disease can get to know one another better!
When and how were you diagnosed with GORD? How long have you had it? How do you cope with it? Have you tried any medications or treatments for it? How are you doing today?
Do you have any experiences or questions to share with the community? Don't hesitate to share them here and help our community grow!

@Courtney_J Hi, I've just joined the group today. I started having acid reflux when I was pregnant with my last child. It was a complicated pregnancy for many reasons, so I put more weight than I should and I was never really able to get it off. The reflux never went away and I was finally diagnosed when my last was 3 (many moons ago now). I since have developed diabetes, so I'm a bit of a mess. I quit smoking at my doctor's recommendation and I've been trying to improve my diet to help with it. My doctor has me on lansoprazole, but it's not been particularly helpful.
