I am not familiar with chiladiti, but for the gerd or heartburn, do not eat & then lay down. If you have a recliner try to sleep in it. If not, raise the head of your bedframe by putting 8 inch cement blocks under the feet of it until you see your doctor. I have terrible GERD. My stomach makes too much acid, & I take omprazole for it. It works wonder for me. I have tried to quit it several times because it can exerbate femur fractures of which I don't need, but every time I miss even one day I am miserable all day & night.You also need to copy all this in your question down, & take it to you when you go. Sometimes we get nervous or they start talking & we forget half of what we want to tell them. The best thing to do is take notes & take them with you.
My doc has gotten so used to me doing this, he automaticklly asks for my list when he enters the room! Kind of funny, but it's not when you leave & think OMG, I forgot to tell him this or that etc... Good luck on your appt. & let us know what your doctor has to say...

Have you tried Zantac for GERD- a person can take 2100 mg a day. You shouldn't eat much before bed time, if at all. Chocolate, coffee, sweets, anything that makes gas is bad for you. so is anything with tomatoes, spices, etc. So are you trying diet. The bad thing about zantac-ranitidine is that it takes about an hour to work. I'd rather deal with that, instead lots of these things that have horrible side effects.

I was taking prilosec twice a day regardless of my diet. i eliminated citrus,tomato dairy spicy foods, I got a slant pillow for my bed as I usually had to sleep sitting up and nothing made a difference if I stopped the prilosec. I was recommended by my herbalist to start taking "Aloe Life"Herbal aloe "Stomach Plus Formula". I took it 3 times a day for 3 weeks and stopped the prilosec. I then tapered it off and only take it maybe once every two days. I sleep like a baby. No sore throats,endless burping, chest pain. it is really a miracle cure for me. It is a liquid, a little strange to taste but worth anything.I DO NOT work for this company!I am a retired 69 year old woman who was told by my medical doctor that due to my age it was something I would have to put up with for the rest of my life.I was concerned about the side effects of Prilosec and that was why I searched around for an alternative
