So I have had some wicked heartburn my whole pregnancy. I took my pepcid with dinner tried to go to sleep a few hours later and I felt the acid pooling a lil at the bottom of my throat but I was tired so I passed out. Fast forward to about a half hour ago that I woke up unable to breathe because I inhaled enough of my own stomach acid I was choking! It was and still is the worst feeling ever it feels like the air is on fire now, and I am wheezing now which I didn't before, I took another pepcid even though they are supposed to be one daily and ate like 5 tums and it has stopped rising as much it seems to slowly be going down. Owwwww

Sounds like acid reflux to me. I know it's scary. You should mention it to your doctor. Hope it doesn't happen again.

That happens to me about twice a week. I think it is one of the worst feelings in the world. Tums always seem to help me!

 Acid Reflux is different than Heartburn?

Quoting jessihernandez:
