    I get the heart burn too. I just have to watch what i eat. I can't eat bananas because it raises my heart rate, I can not eat chocolate it goes right through me i can eat anything that has dairy in it because it causes hemmrrhoids in me, i can not eat tomatoes or anything with that is acid like oragenges because my heart burn will act up and so will my stomach i can not eat fried foods because of stomah issues 

    I just have to eat bland foods like chicken, fish, crackers, bread, carrots, greanbeans, celery but it has to be cooked potatos i can eat and rice too. 

    Then there are times i can't even look at food because of stomach issues

    Funnily enough if cereal is the first thing I eat in the morning I often get reflux. Think it's something to do with the milk, if you have excess stomach acid milk can actually aggravate it, and not neutralise it like some people seem to think.
