Yes I always got heartburn from drinking water, but then again everything gave me heartburn!!!
The only thing i could take that helped was ranitadine tablets. They worked for hours where gaviscon etc worked for about 10mins!!

im not sure but i think i have the same thing, as i have bad acid and on tablets for it but sometimes the tabs dont help on the rare occasion tho but i have to drink cold water to keep it down as it hurts so much, but i think at the mo its making it worse or sometimes when i dont have acid i drink water and then the acid attacks.

so for going on but it could be, i like to hear more from other people be interesting to hear

I had the same for a few days last week, and now I have to be careful never to lay down right after drinking anything. It didn't feel like heartburn exactly as it didn't hurt, but it felt gross and acidic, like the middle of my chest was full of some nasty liquid. Not fun!

Yup, water gives me major heartburn too.. along with pretty much anything I put in my mouth. Sometimes I think just breathing oxygen does it for me too, I'm so done with this whole heartburn thing now

i think the water gives you heartburn because it sorta splashes back back up causing it burn...ive found this too.

i too got the ranitidine tabs from doc. wow. talk about relief. amazing little things they are

Yes, water causes - and/or aggravates - heartburn. I have been getting a lot of heartburn lately, so I've been reading up on how to treat it safely during pregnancy. I was quite shocked to learn that all the water I'd been drinking to combat it actually makes it worse! From what I read, drinking just about any liquid causes the stomach to generate acid.

One thing I've found that helps me almost immediately is to chew a piece of gum. Saliva combats stomach acid, so by chewing gum you generate saliva, which you swallow and which neutralizes the stomach acid in the esophagus. On occasions when I haven't had any gum handy, I've kinda just worked my mouth to create saliva and that helps a bit also.

Mine's been quite frequent but mild enough that gum usually does the trick. When it's worse, I take gaviscon.

Acid reflux is what causes heartburn... it is the acid being pushed back up the esophagus.
