I get it quite a bit myself. Always after I have lemon curd on toast, and I love lemon curd on toast! I use Rennies. Not sure if they make much difference, but my husband says they really do for him when he gets it. We use the fruit ones that are a bit like refreshers. My dad used to drink milk when he had heartburn.
Thanks guys. Im not overweight, as in BMI is fine, (although I am trying to lose some weight). Docs prescribed me gaviscon now alongside colofac and said some stuff about having a regular diet. Dont know how effective that will be.
Ive been told by friend to push to have an ultra sound done, because its not normal and thats how her problem started - she is now going through all the ultra sound etc 12 years later, after having tablets/gaviscon given to her for years and doctors not really caring about treating the problem, only the symptom. Now they think its gall stones or something.
