    You should take time off to go to the doc. Your health is worth looking after. If you really can't, can you keep off greasy food and anything rich that upsets your tum? Hope you feel better soon.

    be careful with heartburn.It can signal that there is something "worse" going on with your body. Like Galstones. My mom and my friend both had severe heartburn and it ended up that they both needed their gall stone removed
  7. I highly recommend a doctor but Ihave found that drinking half &half milk coats my stomach and helps a lot.If it's for GERD I have taken it but found that the half and Half works as good as anything. GERD=bad case of acid reflux marrie

    I had massive heartburn almost every day since high school. We tried every medication and every test. Some of the medications made me very ill.

    One day I began to follow the Blood Type Diet on the advice of my spiritual mom (I am Type A).

    Literally four days later, my heartburn went away for good. I have been good now for 17 months, and I also lost 35 pounds.

    I tested to find out which foods had been causing the heartburn by eating 3 or 4 servings a day of a specific food over a period of 2-3 days.

    Beef we probably used to eat it 3-4 times a week - chili, spaghetti, hamburgers, meatloaf, tacos, etc...

    Tomatoes being from the South, we grew our own and ate tomatoes in some form at almost every meal

    Potatoes same as above

    I think those three foods were the most-consumed in our home for my whole lifetime.

    Nowadays I can eat one serving of any of those three foods over a period of a few days, and I do not get heartburn. If I overdo it - for example at a picnic with huge hamburgers and several kinds of potato salad, I suffer the old heartburn for a day or two afterward.

    Anyway, for what it's worth!... [​IMG]

    I was watching Food Detective a few days back and saw that vinegar will naturally neutralize any stomach acid. Weird. I can't remember how you were supposed to take it though.
