sorry if this is a stupid question... but what does Heart burn feel like?

I have like a burning in my really upper chest and throat, but i've been sick too (cold). It feels horrible. I've never had heartburn, so just wondering if it's that or something else....

  • That sounds like heartburn. Have you ever drank liquor that burned on the way down? It feel similar to that, in my opinion.

  • Thats what heartburn feels like for me, I usually pop a tums and it settles it down usually. You might want to discuss this with a doctor b/c there is medication that can help you with this.

  • Yep, sounds like it. If you don't have anything to take for it drink some cold water but not to much. That always helped me.
