Heartburn

I have HORRIBLE heartburn to the point where it wakes me up all times of the night and is very uncomfortable during the day. Tums don't seem to work and I need relief. Do you ladies do  anything else for heartburn?

Milk is not good for heartburn. It sits in your stomach and curdles and can make you vomit. My doctor said Zantac twice a day or prevacid and tums in between if needed

Ive tried everything for my heartburn which I got every other week, it would go on for hours and hours in the middle of the night so i chugged a bottle of water and vomit out all the acid. A tip from a nurse hotline I called when I couldnt take the pain.  Couple minutes later it was such a huge relief of no chest inflammation or burning pressure. Slept so good right after.

I get very mild heart burn and it's quite rare but still. .. milk works great for me... keep hydrated abs avoid too much greasy or acidic foods

  Interesting. Lol milk will curdle in your tummy? Rot ? I'm pretty sure milk would not be something for us to drink if it rotted when consumed. If you can not stomach milk well thrn is not going to be good to use for heart burn. I drink a gallon of milk about every 3-4 days ... I drink milk .. a lot. All the time. I'm also NOT lactosr n tolerant. If you are duh it will make you sick ...
