What could be causing this?

I get heartburn/ indigestion so much. Ever since I had/ was pregnant with my son it never lets up. I have to always have Tums on hand with me at all times.

I thought that eating healthier would help it go away. Boy was I wrong. It's almost like now I'm really super sensitive to EVERYTHING. If it's just the slightest bit greasy or seasoned spicy it gives me horrible heartburn. I just don't understand! My hubby is telling me it's more than heartburn but I just don't want to go to the Dr and get medicine. I just really thought eating healthier would help not make it worse.

Any ideas or suggestions?

My grandmother had GERD, which made EVERYTHING give her heartburn/indigestion. :-/

That's the only thing that comes to mind.

 Sometimes after frequent heartburn you have some erosion on your esophagus (similar to GERD). I had horrible heartburn with my first pregnancy. After she was born it stayed with me, lol. My family doctor prescribed (I can't even remember what it was now, lol), and I only had to take it daily for about a month. I think it is an OTC medication now. He said some people need something short term, and not permanently. Luckily I was one of those people. Good luck and feel better!

A friend of mine has heartburn all the time and she's really healthy. She pays a lot of attention to eating alkaline vs. acidic foods which she says helps a lot.

A hazelwood necklace helps her some .
