People keep on suggesting simple medications that I am sure you have tried. The suggestion regarding the baking soda is outright dangerous. You need to go after the underlying cause. The most common cause of heartburn is H. pylori infection (the 2005 Nobel prize in Medicine went to the doctors that discovered that fact). So you need to get tested for that bacteria (either blood or stool test) and treated as needed. Also, you should meet with a doctor to make sure you dont have any more serious ailments such as stomach ulcers, erosions of esophagus, etc. Finally other organs, especially heart, can produce symptoms that can be misinterpreted as heartburn...another reason to get checked out. Good luck!

I m having heartburn that began last night and is not responding to OTC medication. I took several chewable tums during the night that helped it ease but not go away and this morning took my Protonix. It has not gone away. I ve also taken a Zantac. It has moved between my shoulder blades and into my upper back. Any suggestions? This isn t brought on by any particular food.....
