  • I eat tums like it is candy. I also add a little bit of yougert to my diet. Its thicker then milk and will coat your stomach better. Vanilla Ice cream might help too.

  • Prevacid OTC. Milk can make heartburn worse.

  • cut the junk food, sit up straight, or stand after eating, eat smaller amounts of food. i found tums to work better than papya.
    good luck! i know it can get awful!

  • sorry, also, if it is so bad that you get that watery feeling in your mouth than be sure to brush after you feel that, the acid can really erode the teeth!

  • Steamed cabbage works like a dream for me! I read that cabbage heals ulcers and you're supposed to juice it but ewwww....steamed works fine for heartburn, seriously, try it, you'll won't need antacids anymore I promise!
