Re: Ever have heartburn that hit all of a sudden?

Yep I have that often. Right in the middle of my chest and makes the sternum hurt. I had it the other day for 3 hours.
I have started taking some stronger than tums medicine. Just over the counter stuff. I had the paramedics last week tell me that I needed something for it because it was heartburn.

Yep. Try some over the counter Prilosec along with Gaviscon, which is pretty much the strongest antacid out there (but don't take too much for too long).

Like other said try some over the counter meds for heartburn when this happens and if it makes it any better then it's certainly not a heart issue.
