    Try a spoonful of bicarbonate of soda in water, it really does work! It doesn't taste too bad x

    i eat tons of bananas doesnt work for me. someone had me try green olives that has strangly worked. I am all out of olives and have been using zantac 2xper day worked the first 3 days now its back!! Oh the pain my burning throat. Plus the babies think there on a trampoline and that isnt helping :0(

    Tums work for me, as well as sitting up and downing some water (I only get heartburn when I'm laying down). Good luck!!

    I find that lying on my left side really helps, apparently if you lie on your right side its easier for the acid to come up to your throat? But if your on ur left it sinks to the pit of ur stomach, thats what ive been told lol x

    I can sympathise, had it for a few months now and it drives me insane. Can't sleep properly because of it and if I wake up thirsty I have the choice of having some water and setting the acid off again or trying to go back to sleep thirsty - grrrr!
