Re: "heartburn" from alcohol???
I have the same problem! But it's not every time I drink, only sometimes; and not only when I drink a certain type of alcohol. Really unpredictable. People tell me it's probably heartburn too, but I know it's not - it's a very full-feeling pressure like you described, not a "burn". Unfortunately eating doesn't help (I usually feel too "full" to let anything go down my throat!) and...well I haven't thrown up when it's happened so I don't know about that! I still haven't found anything to help, unfortunately!
Also, a while after I have this feeling, it usually turns into horribly painful, un-normal hiccups (I posted about it yesterday). So I'm thinking it may be some sort of air trapped in my esophagus or something (since it's in the chest and not in my stomach or anywhere else) that irritates my insides until I get those hiccups. I don't know if you can call that gas if it hasn't even reached the stomach yet?? Who knows, all I know is it is VERY annoying and uncomfortable!
