I keep getting heartburn (almost everyday) whats up with me?


Answers:
The best treatment for heartburn is to make sure you are always well hydrated (this means water), avoid high fat or fried foods, avoid acidic foods and avoid caffeine. Tums are always a good treatment and you get some added calcium. If it continues after that, you may want to see a gastroenterologist and be sure you haven't done serious esophagal damage or are suffering from GURD.
Eat lease fatty food!
Could be acid reflux or an ulcer. A doctor would have to decide for sure.
your fat and you eat a lot..just STOP
either lay off the beans , or ur bing invaded by aliens
Take "Ocid" they brilliant. They get rid of your heart burn almost instantly, check the local pharmacy they should have it.
Depends on how old you are. Recurring heartburn can be diagnosed as symptom of a heart attack.
You're probably eating something that is causing it. Foods high in acid like tomato juice can cause heartburn. Try to find out what food is irritating your stomach and don't eat it for a while.
That's worth asking a doctor about, because it can lead to serious problems. It could be as simple as too much spicy food, or stress, or it could be real trouble like an ulcer. Best to see a doc and find out. Good luck!
Work with basics: Drink more water! Eat less spicy foods. Take a few antacids. If it won't go away, go see your Doctor.
it may be acid reflux, youd wanna see a doctor about that.also watching what you eat and exercising could help.
Its best to see a doctor because, if you don't get medicine to relieve heartburn, you can cause irreversible damage to your esophagus and it can cause you to get ulcers. Take care of yourself.
“Indigestion” refers to any number of gastrointestinal complaints, which can include wind (belching, flatulence, or bloating) and upset stomach. “Heartburn” refers to a burning feeling that can be caused by stomach acid regurgitating into the oesophagus from the stomach, by gastritis (inflammation of the lining of the stomach), or by an ulcer of the stomach or duodenum (also called peptic ulcer). “Low stomach acidity” refers to the inability to produce adequate quantities of stomach acid that will affect digestion and absorption of nutrients.

In some cases, such as lactose intolerance, symptoms of indigestion are due to a specific cause that requires specific treatment. Sometimes symptoms associated with indigestion are caused by diseases unrelated to the gastrointestinal tract. For example, ovarian cancer may cause a sensation of bloating. Anyone with symptoms of indigestion should be properly diagnosed by a healthcare professional before assuming that the information below is applicable to their situation.

The most common cause of heartburn is gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD), in which the sphincter between the oesophagus and the stomach is not functioning properly. Another, related cause of heartburn is hiatal hernia, in which a small portion of the stomach protrudes through the aforementioned sphincter.

According to Jonathan Wright, MD, another cause of heartburn can be too little stomach acid.1 This may seem to be a paradox, but based on the clinical experience of a few doctors such as Dr. Wright, supplementing with betaine HCl (a compound that contains hydrochloric acid) often relieves the symptoms of heartburn and improves digestion, at least in people who have hypochlorhydria (low stomach acid). The amount of betaine HCl used varies with the size of the meal and with the amount of protein ingested. Typical amounts recommended by doctors range from 600 to 2,400 mg per meal. Use of betaine HCl should be monitored by a doctor and should be considered only for indigestion sufferers who have been diagnosed with hypochlorhydria.

You could have esophogeal reflux, I take zantac for this, recurrent heartburn can erode the linings of your stomach and esophogus.
You are suffering from a condition known as Acid Reflux.

Before you seek any kind of medical attention, you may want to try some dietary changes: Less acidic foods/drinks, caffene, coffee, etc.

If these changes don't work, or you simply don't want to make them, you should go see a doctor. You will likely end up going through an endoscopy(where they stick a camera down your esophogus. Not nearly as bad as it sounds. You're drugged up nicely and the experience should be just fine.), and end up being placed on a prescription acid reflux treatment such as Prevacid or Nexium.

Unless everything clears up with dietary changes, it is important to go to the doctor. You may have some sort of stomach condition that is causing the acid reflux, and/or the acid can cause a stomach condition such as "Barrett's Esophagus", where the lining of the esophagus is basically chewed on by stomach acid.
r u eating a lot of spicy or fatty food? you may have an ulcer or you ma be making too much acid see a doctor to discover which..When this happened to me (went on for months) saw a doctor had to go to hospital where they put a small camera down my throat and hey presto a very small and i mean small ulcer which I had tablets for , didn't take long for it to disappear that was a few years back and been OK ever since.Its horrible having heartburn day in day out I feel for you .so get it checked out.OK
you must have too much excess stomach acid because that is what causes heartburn. Take some heartburn tablets or something that contains high alkaline that will help balence the acid and stop the heeartburn, just make sure you balence your diet after its gone down and don't eat anything too acidic, k
You should try simple dietary changes first such as limiting alcohol, caffeine, hot spices, etc. Don't smoke. Don't lay down at least two hours after eating--let gravity help you keep it down. Keep yourself hydrated. If it persists after these changes then see your physician--you may have GERD (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease), where the valve between the stomach and esophagus isn't working correctly and is letting some of the food and acid from your stomach back into your esophagus (food pipe). Your esophagus doesn't have the mucous protection the stomach has against the acid and will, over time, break down the lining of your esophagus. There are tests, such as UGI, your doctor can do for you to diagnose, and there are medications available for your doctor to prescribe to help. If that is what is wrong, however, you never get rid of it. You continue with the diet and medication from now on.
keep tract of what foods give you heartburn and try to avoid them =] good luck!
I would surmise you are not digesting your food properly.

I used to get heartburn ALL the time, until I started taking digestive enzyme supplements with my meals.

You can order products from the WellZymes product line over the Internet, or talk to your doctor about getting enzymes with higher potency. You can also get enzyme products that include herbal extracts like marshmallow root, licorice root, etc. to help with the problem.

Enzyme supplementation is mainly an "alternative" medical approach, but it is really becoming more mainstream. I posted a link to a pdf document highlighting a fairly recent medical study.

There's a lot of info out there about enzyme supplements, and many different products. I'd suggest the WellZymes line for sure - they work great and are 100% vegetarian + they're fairly priced.

Good luck - hope this helps!
