My New Daily Enemy: Heartburn

I’ve had daily enemies my whole life: bloating, wheezing, shortness of breath, etc. They’re nothing new, but this new symptom is just plain annoying! I suppose it’s due to my increased food intake producing more stomach acid. It used to just be that I was supposed to take Zantac to help my enzymes not get destroyed as fast, but now it’s a matter of daily functioning.

I’m wondering if anyone else is experiencing such a brutal burn, so let me describe it. There is a strong pain, as if I swallowed battery acid, in my throat/windpipe just below my Adam’s apple. Nothing above and nothing below hurts. No amount of eating or drinking cold things make it go away. The only relief is an hour after Zantac or prevention via Zantac.

So, anyone else burning away, too?
