    Constant heartburn, constant chest pain
    kyle9496 posted:
    It's literally all the time. I always ate really fast growing up. It was like I couldn't even help it. I'm hypoglycemic, so when I was hungry, I was HUNGRY. Never been obese. Always have been thin. Anyways, it was a thing that would happen like once or twice a week, but around two weeks ago I got food poisoning. Didn't vomit at all. Just. You know. The other end. But ever since that night, the heartburn has been literally constant. I can feel the acid coming up now, as I type this, and going back down. It doesn't quite reach the throat. It used to do that a lot more often. But now, it almost never does. This really sucks. I want it to go away. Not sure if I have gerd, haven't been properly diagnosed, but that seems to be the most likely cause. Any tips? Besides going to the doctor? All the doctors around here are really terrible. 90 percent of the time they don't help me at all. It is really annoying.
