    Its not medicinal but a big glass of milk always helps my acid reflux...oh and lying down just makes mine worse so keep upright...

    also chewing gum seems to do the trick?!

    Thanks hun...! :flower:

    i havnt actually tried it but i would of thought ice cream would be really good too...just coz its so cold and obviously the milk/dairy in it would calm the stomach at the same time?! hmmm, might investigate that one!! :haha:

    Baking soda. It's disgusting but it works when you don't have anything else on hand!

    Katie- I imagine that's probably a similar scenario to me, dairy curdles with the acid in your stomach making you sick. Happens to me whenever I eat dairy xx

    They seem to be shit for everyone else but rennies really work for me? And ice lollys cool it. Avoid spicey stuff if you dont already and sit upright. Hope you feel better soon :hugs: x

    Went out for lunch with OH on Sunday. Ordered my meal and couldn't eat it because of reflux. He ate it for me. I ordered ice cream in desperation - it was thick snow outside and the waitress looked at me like I was insane but...it did the trick for me! I didn't suffer again that day and I've been getting it really bad. It's not ideal considering the fat and sugar but it's good if your desperate and also if out for a meal and the other options are going to trigger it.

    Good luck!

    Heya.
    I know the feeling.
    I sufferd from bad acid reflux before i was pregnant so i am on Omeprazole.
    Their safe to take during pregnancy and work like a charm.
    I've had heartburn once in 33 weeks :)
    The dr will have to prescribe them though.

    Urrrgghh! It's gonna be the death of me I swear. I can't so much as look at bread or potatoes without it gearing up :hissy: I have boiled sweets all over the place. Try cough candy twist but a glass of milk definately works for me. Just don't take Gaviscon and then milk immediately after cos you'll bring up something you'll likely need later on with all the yacking that'll ensue :sick::mrgreen: xx

    Wow thanks for all the advice everyone, OH came home with two bottles of gaviscon and those little sachets of the stuff that u can carry about, had a few glasses of milk and it cooled it for an hour. I really hate gaviscon but if I have enough of the stuff it does seem to have an affect!
