How come you do not have your website viewable in mobile format? Can not see anything in my Droid.

I like your fantastic web site, I was searching for this all over.
Good thing you are seeing a dotcor. You might have ulcer that requires antibiotics besides anti-acids (anti-histamine as zantac/pepcid or proton-pump inhibitors as Prilosec). That could explain why it is getting worse and not better.Also, you might have problems with the Pyloric sphincter, and acid is leaking into the esophagus, which in many instances might require surgical intervention.Advice, don’t waste your money on some apple scam. Try some extra strength Gaviscon or Maalox that will coat the stomach/esophagus and might help with the discomfort.Avoid acidic foods (pop, tomato), caffiene, and alcohol.
