Why do I get heartburn after every thing I eat?

Why do I get heartburn after every thing I eat?

No LES/Acid: You many have many reasons for this but apparently your lower esophageal sphincter (les) is not working and/or you have an overproducton of acid. Severe gerd (gastroesophageal reflux) needs evaluation with an endoscopy and treatment for findings and underlying causes. Usually a ppi (prilosec type drug) is used and maybe an h-2 (zantac (ranitidine) type). You need evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

Why do I get heartburn almost every time I eat? It's a lot worse at night. Wake up in night nauseous and need Zantac (ranitidine).

GERD: You may have GERD that is not responding to ranitidine. If you take your ranitidine at night, and take an alternative like omeprazole or lansoprazole in the mornings, and your heartburn resolves, then it's likely GERD. But there are conditions that can contribute, and with a history of thyroid cancer you should have your thyroid stimulating hormone checked. Ask your doctor for more information. ...Read more

Is constant heartburn a serious problem? Every time i eat, i get moderately painful, sometimes very painful, heartburn. Should i just try some OTC drugs, or is it better to get this looked at?

Is constant heartburn a serious problem? Every time i eat, i get moderately painful, sometimes very painful, heartburn. Should i just try some OTC drugs, or is it better to get this looked at?

Try : Try otc medications, provided you are not allergic. There are some medication on the market that are very effective for helping with heartburn. Your doctor will want to know if you have tried this option prior to seeing him/her. Some of the medications can take up to 14 days to begin working. If after a couple of weeks the otc meds are not helpful, make an appointment to see your doctor. It is important that you do not leave this untreated. The acids in your stomach can cause deterioration of your espohagus or an ulcer. Also, is any of these pains are associated with chest pain that is tight/pressure or radiates to the jaw or back, it could be a cardiac issue. Go to the er if this is the case. ...Read more

Lots of things!: You really need to see a doctor for this, straightprid. You could have bad reflux disease, which is when acid from your stomach comes up your esophagus causing pain and nausea. You could have an ulcer. But you could also have something more serious like cancer of the esophagus. Your doctor might try medicine or refer you to a GI specialist. Please take care of yourself and get checked out! ...Read more

I get heartburn every time I eat carb foods (pasta, breads, oatmeal etc). Is this gluten related? I don't experience other gluten allergy symptoms.

Possible: Try gluten-free oat to see if causes the same symptoms. Even though you may not have the full-blown symptoms,and heart burn is not the usual symptoms in gluten intolerance, it cannot be totally ruled out. Nonetheless it would be a good idea for you to consult a doctor regarding these symptoms. ...Read more
