First off, quit taking Tums. They just make your belly make more acid and make things worse. Try eating a yogurt everyday. Plain is best but fruit flavored works too. Just no artificial sweetners. The other thing that worked for me is to drink cultured buttermilk when things get bad. About 2-3 ounces right before bed does the trick for me. Also, try to sleep only on your left side. Your stomach is slanted so if you sleep on your right side or back it can make things worse. Good luck and I hope you feel better :)
for the gas, ask your doctor if it's ok to take beano. they sell it at walmart. the slogan goes like this, "take beano before, and there will 'beano' gas"as for the heartburn ask if you can take a zantac.
