    As title says all weekend been so bad im getting it all the time. Wake up in night burning throat wanting to throw up. Slept upright last night and that killed my neck. Eating rennie like sweets. Cant take gaviscon makes me puke. Think il have to call docs and beg for something. Anyone got any tips. I dont drink milk either as makes me puke. Sitting here with that burning sickness in my throat again ;( x

    Im definitely sympathising with u here. its a nightmare ive had it throughout this pregnancy and it too wakes me up in the night. Im taking rennies, gaviscon and drinking milk and that's just about working for me. If I were u I would go to the docs and see what else is available xx

    Ive suffered continuous with this so fully sympathetic. Ask ur doc for prescription of ranitidine, its really helped me. When its really bad i gulp some gaviscon type stuff i got from doc aswell called peptac. it comes in two flavours peppermint or aniseed, i prefer the peppermint. other than that i drink loadssss of cold milk, hope u get some relief xx

    Ranitadine is available to buy, however ask the GP for something. Slugging gaviscon as I type.

    I hope it improves for all of you. I've been really lucky and very little heartburn. Have gaviscon but only needed it a few times. Squiggle never seems to get that high. There's still time I guess!
    Defo get to the Dr. Worth a try xx
