Heartburn before and after pregnancy. Why is it ?

I am 29 years old and I have only had heartburn one time before that was when I was pregnant . 2 days ago I ate one bite of a spicy chicken sandwich and it burned my throat and chest badly so I stopped eating it. Since then I have been having heartburn on and off even when I don t eat. Why would I have this and will it ever go away?

Spicy foods can cause heartburn. The following link is for an article which describes the tips needed to relief heartburn. If, inspite of following the instructions, heartburn persists then you must consult a doctor.

as the history is of very recent onset and that too has a potent cause of spicy food, so i believe there is nothing to worry for long term disease. just avoid spicy food and lead a natural life style. you can get temporary relief just with cold milk. If it persists then other causes can be searched and treated accordingly.
