Heartburn in my throat

Common Questions and Answers about Heartburn in my throat


Can someone please just sum up what having heartburn feels like, I know it's common in pregnant women so I knew it would come I just never knew how it would feel, I want to make sure this is really heartburn that I'm feeling and not anything serious bc this feeling truly *****, its feels like my throat and chest are just collapsing (that's a bit dramatic) but it really is an uneasy feeling, my throat is very irritated, my whole inside just feels really gasy...
I take tums, its perfectly safe.
Warm water & baking soda. Tastes gross but does the trick!!
I have six weeks left and I am in the same boat as you. I feel like my throat is on fire. I have been popping tums like candy. Actually my doctor recomened taking two a day any way for the calcuim. Hang in there.. I dont think anything is going to cure the heart burn but the tums will definitly help.
Anyway, I have never ever had heartburn. I started to experience uncomfortable sensation in my throat... esophagus??? then I burp like crazyyyyyyyyyyyyy... it is so uncomfortable... are those symptoms of heartburn... sorry for being so ignorant. What can I take... tums? I have an appointment on Wed. but maybe anyone already consulted this with her doctor. Any hep/advice will be appreciated. Thanks and have a restful Sunday.
Tums are ur friend! I keep one in my purse, in my night stand, and at work on my deak. I don't know how I would cope without them.
Okay so I am a mother expecting baby #4, so you would think I would remember how bad heartburn can get in the third trimester. Wow! It's like my throat is on fire all night really bad in bed. May start sleeping in a chair! Just wondering if anyone has a great cure?? I sip milk to put out the fire a bit. I hate chalky tums. Any other thoughts??
My heart burn/acid reflux has only gotten worse with this pregnancy! I noticed it sometime in the 2nd trimester and I am now 32 weeks. Sometimes I just get an awful burning in my throat as well. I usually take tums, it works for a little while and but always comes back!! I figure I am almost there, so I think I can hang in there. But like these other ladies have said, you may want to get a prescription for something if it's really bad. I feel your pain!!
Ugh even when i dont eat anything my throat is on fire and i dont want to od on tums . I was wondering if their are some other ways to help with heart burn .
During my preg. I was told Maalox, even extra strength, as I could only sleep upright due to acid in my throat......Maalox worked.
I always felt like when I took the pill it was burning all the way down my esophagus, I also had terrible burning in my throat that I could hear at night. I quit taking it that day! I went to my doctor and he said I was crazy. I stayed off of it for 8 months and now I am finally trying synthroid. I do not recommend anyone quite taking your thyroid medicine!! I do recommend you change to synthroid! Four weeks into synthroid and I do not have heartburn or stomach problems.
You know what helped me a lot was eating carrots.
cuz there are now 4 bigger bumps at the back of my tounge. and my throat is white, and my voice is kinda goin. so i was sure it was a virus.
And I mean it feels like lava in my stomach all the way up my esophagus then the bubble bursts in my throat it's disgustingly painful. Eating a bowl of cereal has been helping me lately.
It's terrible and when I don't feel the heartburn I feel like my food is trying to come up and it's stuck in my throat......not always accompanied with nausea......

I have Gastro Esophogeal Reflux Disease and am 17 weeks pg with #2. I have erosions in my esophagus from heartburn, its horrible. Since I have started drinking a glass of milk with each meal, and sometimes in between I have actually been taking less tums. Good Luck.
I took Tums -- along with Gaviscon -- and anything else I could get my hands on, early in treatment to see what was most effective with my reflux. I Just made sure to space the antacids away from the riba. But like yourself, I ended up on Nexium, which you do not have to space away from your riba dose.
People who have heartburn in their families will have heartburn as a major issue. See - the body works like a machine --- and the liver cures or cleans the oil that lubes that machine.
I have terrible heartburn and my son gave me terrible heartburn, he was basically bald. I have a 30 week ultrasound soon so I guess I will know if we are gunna have long locks on our baby girl or not then.
I have tried all the over the counter meds and nothing seems to work. I do not feel like I am going to vomit, or feel the burning in my throat like acid reflux, I only have severe heartburn now and then. At least 1/2 of the week. I am very active, have a pretty stressfull job, I work out at the club 4 days a week and run 3 miles at least 4 days a week. I stay away from fattie and fried foods, I eat lots of chicken and fish no red meat at all.
I have had some heartburn but not the same feeling as you that something is in my throat... Mostly just a heartburn feeling at night right when going to bed. I have found that for me eating oatmeal or high fiber cereal every morning helps with the digestion.

My throat feels very raspy like after you throw up the acid and that pain in your throat any way to help it go away?
I had bad experiences with the PPI's and Zantac (Ranitidine) isn't the least bit helpful. I am careful with my diet, but I still get this feeling in my throat and the pain right below the sternum. I rarely get heartburn from my foods any more, because I am watching very carefully what I eat. What kind of treatment other than PPI's and/or Ranitidine do you suggest? Every time I was taking PPI's they were making me very nauseous within only a few minutes of taking the medicine.
