First of all, you need to get correctly diagnosed yourself and not label yourself as acid reflux.. Two tests are required... Upper GI endoscopy and esophageal manometry... To prove Astral gastritis and lax or hypotensive lower esophageal sphincter. If so... Them you require medicines for the same... If symptoms are worse inspite of medicines and are really long standing, or if you are having difficulty in swallowing food, you need laparoscopic fundoplication surgery to correct it.
