Today I had a bout of heartburn that was really bad. It started off gradual and withing about 15 minutes it had gotten so bad i was almost sick.
It came in waves. I took gaviscon tablets then 2 zantac together , then in desperation as i hate it , i drank some milk (yuk).
It seemed to ease off but ive not felt like eating since.
Then tonight i had a coughing fit which felt like something in my throat, that went away after a drink of water.
I had this problem about 2 years ago when i was overweight, then i lost weight and didnt have it again. Ive put back on th eweight again, and its back, i suppose i answered my own question and that is to lose weight, but its so hard, and what can i do to alleviate this awful heartburn please?
