Has anyone ever had active heartburn? I realized a few days ago that the plug-ins that I have all over my home is causing or contributing to my heartburns. What can I do to lower the fire in my chest?

  • I'm sorry, honey I've never had heartburn. Everyone told me I'd get it when I was preg but didn't. My BIL said if you mix about a Tbs. Baking Soda with small cup of water it cures heartburn everytime. He said it'll make you burp ALOT but it works! :)

  • Plug ins cannot contribute to your heartburn as you don't ingest the materials in the plug ins - you breath it, not eat it.

    Constant heartburn can be reflux and needs to be treated seriously since reflux can erode the lining in your throat, ruin your esophagus, etc.

  • I have it and have had it for years talk to your doctor about what is going on and make sure it isn't anything more serious

  • I have GERD, and for the last 8 years I've been taking Nexium/Prevacide every day, sometimes twice a day. There is a surgery option for me I just choose not to take it at this point.

  • Plug-ins have nothing to do with heartburn. Are you pregnant? is it only occasionally, or often? I have heartburn and take over the counter prilosec, which my doctor recommended. You can try it for two weeks, and only take it longer after you see a doctor. My brother has Barret's syndrome, pre-cancer of the esophagus. He had heartburn for years and never did anything but the baking soda, tums route. Now he's being treated.
