If you suffer from heartburn twice a week or more for weeks or months on end, you should see a doctor because you may have GERD, also known as acid reflux, a serious condition that can inflame or erode the lining of the esophagus. PPIs are effective at treating GERD, but you will have to see a doctor to confirm you have the condition and monitor your treatment to make sure it's effective.
