I Have Heartburn

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 27 People

    Ouch!!!

    I found out last year that I have acid reflux disease. I thought I was having a heart attack...because I was having all the signs and symptoms. I am now taking Nexium on a daily basis to help me battle it. I have less attacks now, but they do come on strong every once in awhile.

    Mine Is Hereditary

    On my dad's side of the family. Started showing itself when I was in my early 20's. My first instinct was to eat to get it to calm down.  It'd calm down for a little while then flare back up. I've since learned that my Dad has it and have been treating it. Haven't...

    Everything's Burning :(

    My whole internal network is like... it's not a raging burn, but a slow simmer from the back of my throat, and it almost feels like it's creeping towards my ears, it's a horrible feeling.
