I had such wicked heartburn today that it felt like hellfire was coursing through my chest and throat. I ran out of the office in tears, went to the doctor who wouldn't see me, then to the pharmacy, then to my bed where I consumed a lot of extra-strength Tums and Alka Seltzer. I felt and feel better, though not 100%. I have been having issues lately. Every time I eat I want to throw up. Doc appointment Friday, let's see if we can't nab this thing, because it is not fun.

Might need an upper endoscopy to check out your stomach. You could have H Pylori bacteria in your stomach - especially if you've travelled overseas. Try some Prilosec OTC for two weeks and see how you feel. Take one tablet per day 1/2 hour before breakfast. Lay off the ibuprofen/aleve/advil if you take that.
