I have had heartburn on and off, but today its so bad (like a gas feeling like I need to burp or my chest will explode) I took 2 pepcid, and it still wont go away.. Im even drinking milk, which seems to b making it worse. lettuce also does this to me, but I dont know what to do about it...

  • I use Maalox too, it really helps! If I drink milk for my heartburn I make sure to sip it, if I drink it fast the heartburn just gets worse.
