    It's started! I thought I might have escaped it this time round but it has made an appearance today! Blurgh! Any hints on what you're eating/drinking to keep it at bay? I remember downing gaviscon last time so will have to pick some up tomorrow.

    Just 2 more days left at work thank god, so hopefully it will calm down when I'm less stressed!! Xxx

    Ask the dr for prescription, ranitidine works a treat! Only worked a few days for me tho as mine was really severe so I'm on omeprezole now. But there's defo things you can take huni so don't suffer! X

    Ranitidine convert here too! My heartburn & reflux is awful, esp at night...boke! Doc also told me to tilt bed at the head of it (use couple books) not too much that u really notice but enough that ur not totally flat. i havent given it a go myself, oh wasnt keen on it at all but thought id pass it on x

    I have lots of gaviscon and drink milk, it only ever comes on at night when I'm in bed so I have my head propped up slightly which seems to help but gaviscon is definatley my number one lol xx
