I'm a couple of stone overweight, and know i should loose it, i get heartburn lots, have it right now after just doing housework,, is this normal is it because i'm overweight or could it be something else???

Lots of people just suffer with heartburn, don't have to be overweight. Ask your GP for some PPI medication like lansoprozale. I take this and it's brilliant, and now, if i take the lowest dose they make once every other day it manages to keep the heartburn away smile

(Forget a dose though and it comes back, and if I eat the wrong stuff/get stressed etc I can take more until it is settled.)
