I have never been one to have heartburn, maybe once in a great while. Lately, i have been experiencing heartburn on and off . I can't really pinpoint it to any particular food. I have a pain right under my breast bone, when i have the heartburn. I decided to try an over the counter antacid pill to see if if improves and it seems to work. What could be causing this all of a sudden? Does stress cause this??
So there is a connection between stress and heartburn? I didn't knowthat.
I am a very healthy 55 year old and have never had a disgestive problem.
Again, the heartburn comes out of the blue lately. I am hoping it will subside a bit. I don't get it every time I eat. Thank Goodness. so for now i will take the antacids when needed.bride527
After I was diagonosed with IBS, my doc put me on Prilosec on a daily basis, over the counter strength. The heartburn was so bad, that I couldn't breathe most of the time. It started out every few days, and then got to be every day, all day. If it becomes persistent, ask your doc about reflux.
