I get it too - it's awful. sometimes saltines help...it seems like they kind of soak up the acid or something. I've heard that some people take zantac and that it helps - you'll want to double check that with your doctor tho...
I have heartburn so bad sometimes it makes me throw up! I found that Zantac or generic its called Ranitidine twice a day along with tums by the handful helps me greatly!! Also staying away from caffeine in pop and coffee or tea helps a lot too! I literally go through bottles every month.
