heart burn relief!!??!!

So i have acid reflux even before my pregnancy but it has turned into a living hell. Something as simple as an apple or a drink of milk will trigger it. I have tried everything. Tums have quit working. I use papaya enzymes and they help a little bit. I have the head of my bed raised 4 inches off the floor. I ear a yogurt every night before i sleep which also helps a tad bit. Over all every night when i lay down i get the worse pain in my throat and chest, im already short of breath and this makes it 10 times worse. Any advice?

Try Zantac! I've recently been dealing with massive heartburn and those things work miracles. Good luck!

I don't know if u have it in the US but iv had bad heartburn since brig pregnant and I find Gaviscon has been amazing, gets rid of it almost instantly. They come in different forms, I take the chewable tablets, two at a time and they're great x
