    Ugh that fucking sucks. I hate heartburn. I have chronic heartburn so I can totally empathize. Sometimes drinking chocolate milk helps me, sometimes taking apple cider vinegar pills helps. When it gets really bad and nothing will help I will have to sleep on a recliner. Some people say sleeping on their left side helps as well because the way the stomach is shaped.

    I had some bad heartburn whilst pregnant. If you have Fruit Tingles where you live, they're a candy that has the additional side effect of helping with heart burn. Much more delicious alternative to the usual chalk-like options.

    I have chronic heartburn. Lay upright in bed not on your side. Heartburn comes from the stomach acids splashing up into your esophagus. No protective coating there like in the stomach so it hurts.

    Drink milk slowly, eat some bread, calcium carbonate tablets like Tums or Rolaids do help. Malox can help too. If it is a continous problem get it checked with your Doctor. I had to and I went in for an endoscope to check for GERD. My Doc put me on PPI pills which are a beautiful thing for chronic heartburn sufferers. PPI is proton pump inhibitor. You can get them otc now so ask your pharmacist if they have any Prevacid on the shelves.

    I hatee heartburn. I get it too sometimes. Definitely eating bread works for me.
