    hi there, is it down the centre ie oesophagus? or across the chest? does anything relieve it? and does it happen after eating or on empty stomach? oh and are you on meds? ive started having heartburn, reflux and generally poor digestion in menopause and sometimes get the burn in top centre of chest to the sternum. chamonile tea, ginger in hot water and drinking plenty of water helps.

      sounds like acid reflux, youre stomach acid's got nothing to work on. try and eat something plain. otherwise are you feeling ok? do you suffer from anxiety or taken any meds today on an empty stomach?

    Hi lloten, I understand what you are going through I recently experienced this horrible feeling I had to eat less drink chamomile tea with a bit of honey to get relief. Hope you feel better soon.

    Hi there,

    I noticed heartburn regularly in my 40s. Cut out dairy and gluten which helps but also having bed on slight angle (put a few books under posts at head of bed) helps. Don't get it anymore. Sometimes mine was subtle and longer lasting and sometimes it burned like yours for short time. Still worth getting checked out if it gets worse. I had scope done and all was fine.
