  • medicine for heartburn is good to take. Sometimes for me milk will work. Eat slowly and do not lay down after eating. Cut back on caffine till better.

  • Papaya enzyme and other digestive enzymes, probiotics, even try chewing a really strong peppermint gum.

  • Mix a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water. It doesn't taste very good, but the baking soda will neutralize the acid and will cause you to burp. It works for me! Good luck!
