How do I get rid of Heartburn?

4 answers
Im having Heartburn all day and night. I thought it was from sweets so I quit eating anything sweet. Now I'm getting it with just about anything I eat, and drink. I have tried Tums and rollaids and baking soda with a cup of water so far nothing is working, My Question is is there a way to get rid of heartburn thats safe for the baby?

Tums! Also, check what you're eating and drinking. Make sure you're elevated at night if it happens then.I found a new Tums- it's sugar free Orange Creme flavor. MUCH less chalky than the regular or berry flavors.
thats how i have been i cant drink pop or eat anything with hot sauce or i cant eat spicey stuff i ask the docter if she knew about any meds i could take she told me to take tums
Also what works for me is to Put together a teaspoon of baking soda together with water to balance out the acid in your stomach, mostly after consuming spicy foods. This home remedy typically works well in just minutes; the water has got to be cool, however not too cold.

Baking soda is extremely high in salt and most likely will result in water retention and high blood pressure should you use it a lot.
I don’t normally comment on articles, but I have an experience I’d like to share that will hopefully help others in a similar position as myself.I have been suffering from painful acid reflux symptoms that doctors found difficult to diagnose. Needless to say, pills and antacids didn’t cure me and the relief was temporary and sometimes insignificant.Until I found the information on this site ( ) it helped me in ways that I still cannot comprehend. My acid reflux symptoms are a thing of the past. It’s like I have never suffered from heartburn.
