I have no idea, but I'm sorry you're in pain! I hope you feel better soon.

Holy grammar and puctuation!! Seriously, do some research. I have been having pretty bad acid during my pregnancy, sometimes things help, sometimes they don't. From what my roommate has found from lots of research, usually your body makes acid because it expects food. When you get acid, don't eat something big, but have a snack. Things that reduce acid (tums and such) only delay the acid, calming down what's there, but then your body thinks it needs more, so it makes more.
Medical science tends to go for quick relief in this area, not actual solutions. Good luck!!

You spelled punctuation wrong.

I rarely get heartburn, but I did not too long ago and wish I would've thought about what I ate or something incase I eat it again. It sucked!

Yeah, but I think for her it was more of a typo rather than a competence issue.

If you're going to scold someone for their writing though you should use spell check...

I and my sons have severe acid reflux. My younger son(17) has had 2 major operations, nissen fundoplications, to deal with gerd since he was refluxing so severely it went into his sinus cavity. There are times I have pains up and down my side. I normally double my zantac 150. Nexium and Prilosec normally take 2 weeks or longer to work. I once took another proton punp inhibitor, Protonix, and it helped. My advice is to go to a gastroenterologist. There are any number of things that might have made this worse: problems with your hiatus, stress, foods, etc. I went for almost 2 years with increased pains before it was discovered that my increased problem was with my gallbladder. Removing my gallbladder helped for a year, then I developed some horrible symptoms. It was discovered that I had developed diabetes and diabetic gastroparesis. Now, if I eat something hard to digest, the food sits in my stomach for 24 to 36 hours and makes all of my symptoms worse.

Go see a GI specialist. Eat bland foods...nothing after 6 pm. Good luck. I know it is frightening. I am glad it is not your heart. (Even one of my favorite doctors told me he would get such bad acid reflux that he once went to the ER thinking he had a heart attack)
