Welcome to My Heartburn’s Gone, ARE YOU SURE THESE ARE HEARTBURN SYMPTOMS?
If you’ve’ve ever experienced the sensation of burning, a sharp pain near your breastbone, or even a pain which radiates up the throat, you may have heartburn. Heartburn symptoms seem to worsen right after a big meal, when lying down or while you sleep.
These are the times when you are susceptible to the rise of acid in the stomach into the esophagus. This is a medical condition also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD.
These feelings of fire in the throat or chest may be mistakenly identified as a heart attack or maybe an asthma attack. If you ever experience this, do not ignore these symptoms because it possibly could be a much more serious medical condition. If this happens to you, it’s time to get some medical advice.
There are certain types of both over the counter and prescribed medications, that may also produce heartburn symptoms. These range from anything like, progestin hormones, NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), broncho-dilators, beta-blockers, and high-blood pressure medications (calcium blockers) along with some other types of drugs. If you currently take any of these drugs, do not discontinue taking them before you talk to your doctor.
