    Any spicy food pretty much guarantees that I'm gonna have heartburn afterwords.

    I dearly love spicy foods, so I soldier on.
  4. Spicy food.

    But I don't care because I love spicy food.

  6. It's not what I eat, but eating too much too late in the evening seems to contribute to heartburn.

    Nothing gives me heartburn anymore now that I started taking Prilosec OTC almost every day. It's a bit expensive but I'm hoping they'll get a generic version out before long.

  8. I think gatoraid give me heartburn,,it's really hard to tell though because just about anything gives me heartburn. anything greasy will do it for sure. fried chicken, chips, tocos, pizza..I take a drug called Protonics for acid reflex and heartburn, but think it just make things worse. I hate heartburn. :(
  9. The usual ones for me are pizza, lasagna, Taco Hell, fried chicken, and most spicy Asian foods. Although I get heartburn a lot more than normal people due to a Hiadal hernia and an overactice gallbladder.

    You guys are gonna hate me.

    I love spicey food and eat lots of it and I've never had heartburn.

    I've seen people with it and it looks pretty uncomfortable.

    Guess I'm just lucky.
  11. Alcohol gives it to me worse than anything else. Food wise, it isn't a matter of what as much as it is a matter of how much...

    Do people just not realize that some simple over-the-counter meds can offer total relief from heartburn? Before Prilosec went OTC I was using generic Pepcid AC...I'd take it 30 minutes to an hour before lunch and then before any other meals or snacks that I knew would cause heartburn (no more than 2 a day). That helped a lot...actually reflux and indigestion was more of a problem with me but also hb. Then I started taking Prilosec and that has completely wiped it out. I know it won't work for everyone but it does for most. I just wish they'd hurry up and get the generic equivalents out as it's kind of expensive. Generics can be a Godsend! Last night at Sam's Club I bought 180ct generic Claritin for $15.83.

    ps - Prilosec says that you can only take it for 14 days at a time once every 3 months. I believe that's just to cover their butts in case your heartburn is a symptom of a larger problem that you need to see a physician for. My family physician and a GI physician both told me that it's ok to take every day but if you're having recurring problems you should check with your doctor first.

    Wow, I didn't realize heartburn was this common. I've never had it in my life. Not once. I eat lots of spicy foods, too.

    I guess it's balanced out though, since my girlfriend gets heartburn from anything spicier than toast.

    I'm sure it has something to do with genetics. Also, you're only 22. I didn't have any problems with it until I was maybe 26 or 27 and I've been told that even that is young to be having the problems that I've had.
