Heartburn after having stomach flu, no vomiting only diarrhea, fever and aches.  Tums (calcium carbonate) and organic vinager don't help.  What would help the heartburn?

Try an H2 blocker: Some people develop heartburn after a stomach flu even without vomiting, because the stomach flu may have caused gastroesophageal reflux, and irritation to the esophagus. I suggest try famotidine 20mg twice a day or ranitidine 150mg twice a day, both are over the counter. In addition, avoid alcohol, caffeine, cigarettes, large meals, and fatty meals. Also, Gaviscon tabs are a wonderful antacid. ...Read more

Are digestive enzyme supplements helpful during pregnancy in alleviating symptoms such as heartburn and or constipation and or gas/bloating?

Are digestive enzyme supplements helpful during pregnancy in alleviating symptoms such as heartburn and or constipation and or gas/bloating?

Doctor may evaluate to see if symptoms are typical for a pregnancy. ...Read more
