I would recommend that you see your doctor about this. There are some very good medications to help severe reflux.
You may also want to consider being tested for a bacteria called H. Pylori that can cause stomach inflammation and ulcers. If it is present it can be treated with a regimen of antibiotics and acid blockers.
Generally, even severe reflux can be brought under control and significant relief can be obtained.
