Heartburn is awful

Last night it was so bad I was throwing up and now I just rescheduled an appointment because I am afraid I’ll start throwing up again. I take meds for heartburn but lately they haven’t been working. I think I will call my doctor. Maybe try a new med.

Metformin was causing me abdominal pain. Told the Dr and he took me off it, no more pain. On the med package it said irritates the stomach.

Meds are definitely part of the problem. If I take meds with yogurt it definitely helps but I ran out. Picking some up later.

Vinegar works for heartburn somewhat. I’ve tried it. It really worked. I think it was apple cider

Do you just sip it?

I drank about a Tablespoon. Do Canadians use Tablespoon measurements? Just get a big spoon out of your kitchen and use that.

My sister knows all these home remedies but she moved out today so now I can’t ask her.

Being honest, I’ve seen your diet. The heartburn meds can only do so much heavy lifting here.

Man, what to say? I loves my pizza and perogies, but sleeping half the night in the chair is awful. Having to swap out oatmeal and bananas for snacks now as a matter of survival. Boring, but I don’t buy TUMS by the case these days. Middle age sux.

@FatMama you can apologize for your behavior to @velociraptor. There was no reason to act that way.

If you don’t want people commenting on your health and diet, don’t post it.

I wasn’t talking about my diet. Even healthier people get heartburn. I’m out. Catch ya on the flipside
