Can you die of heartburn?

Of course I'm just joking but geez Louise! It's SO bad and all I can take are Tums. :(

  • Ugh I feel you. I have been having heartburn every night for the last couple months. I pop Tums like I'm some sort of junkie. I actually had to take Zantac my last pregnancy it was so bad. Thank goodness it doesn't last forever, that's all I gotta say.

  • I had heartburn so bad with both of my kids. I was prescribed Protonix to help. The Tums only turned it into fruity flavored heartburn.

    While they were prepping me for my emergency C-section with my son I had been off the protonix for a couple days and laying flat with my arms out straight was the final straw. After not letting me sit up the second time I felt like puking I vomited all over the anesthesiologist's patent leather shoes. They gave me a foul tasting lemon flavored SOMEthing to control the heartburn induced nausea for my daughter.
