I was wondering if drinking citric soda can cause heartburn. Tonight around 3am i drank squrt and prolly 15 min later i had a sharp pain in the lower part of my chest, when i had the pain it would get slightly worse when i would breath in. the pain is going away now, but im left here wondering. thanks for any replys.
Hmm..well the only thing i can think of is gas. I've had that happen to me before either because I drank it too fast or just because it was the carbonation, and it felt aweful!!! It felt like something was in your chest and you didn't know how to get it out. But eventually I just burped and it got alot better. I don't know if that helped you any or if that was the cause but I just thought I would try
well i took a zantac 75 and fell asleep afterward, i feel fine now, thanks for the info. But i do get a short pain that does linger for a few seconds then is gone, pretty much on and off. any word on that?
