View Full Version : weird question

Ok, this may be weird, but...every once in a while, I get really bad heartburn, and when I do, I tend to cough a little more. Does this happen to anyone else?

Yes its called ACID REFLUX. Its very common in Cfers. Talk to your doctor and they can give you something for it. Usually Ranitadine(zantac).

I do get bad heart burn but it doesn't make me cough more.

I have had Acid Reflux disease for like 10 years...i have had/tryed EVERY pill under the sun! the one that REALLY works for me is Protonix!

I have had the same problem for years. I am now on Prevacid and it seems to do the trick. I've tried all the others and they just weren't strong enough, but so far Prevacid seems to be working very well.

i take prevacid and it really helps. I eat tums often too. It's a good habit to get into b/c stomach acid can deactivate your enzymes if you take them and we all know how that feels later on.

I'm given Losec for my heartburn and it works fine. I've changed to different ones so many times it's retarded

Hey Jo - I just repied to another post about bloating etc - I take Aloe Vera Juice and think it's wonderful! Also eat slowly! that can help since our guts w/out proper digestion would not preoduce enzymes all that fast for a big dump of food at once Give it a chance! When i have a period of reflux i take Losec or some type of Metaclopramide
