What the hell heartburn!!!!

I'v had it all day! I thought maybe it was because it's been a few hours since I ate so I ate, took some tums and still it's here! Why would or could you have heartburn all day? I'm not pregnant to my knowledge and I didn't eat anything I haven't before. I think I can count on my hand how many times I've gotten heartburn in my life.

  • baking soda is good for it too. I know a man that will mix it in water and drink it. I always thought it was gross but after my second I got heartburn even after having her. The doc gave me medicine to take and said it is basically just baking soda in a pill. I love them, they make me feel so much better and last all day.

  • I get it more frequently since I had my youngest, but that was almost 6 years ago. Sometimes stress, chocolate, or fried foods cause me heartburn.

  • Stress sometimes does that to me, and sometimes it can be caused by ulcers. I hope you start to feel better really soon!

  • Ugh, yeah I've got it because I'm pregnant. Try a liquid something isntead of a crunchy. In other words, Tums and Rolaids don't work as well because you have to chew them up. Try Maalox or even something stronger like Pepcid or Zantac.
