    Gillian are you taking the peppermint Gaviscon?  Peppermint is known to make heartburn worse and I got much better after stopping eating peppermints which I did a lot. Try the non peppermint flavour .I can't understandd why the manufacturers of heartburn remedies don't seem to know this.Try some honey down your throat to soothe it.

    Hi.

    I had the same problem but healed it with linseed kissel. You should take drink the kissel first thing in the morning and before going to bed. Change in your diet is crucial as well. You will also need to watch what you are eating and make a diary of food that triggers the problem. Drink a lot of water to get rid of excess acid in your digestive system. Camomile tea is good to have too. It soothes the inflammation of the lining.

    Gaviscon did the same for me and I found omeprazole not helpful at all too.

    Good luck.

      No problem.

      You will need to buy brown linseeds from Holland and Barrett. Take 3 table spoons of the seed and wash them in cold water just to get rid of dust they have. Then put them in a sausage pan and add 1 litre of water. Cook on low heat stirring occasionally for 30 mind or until you notice the liquid is getting thicker. It doesn't have to be too thick as it will thicken when cooled. After cooking the seeds will fall down, so make sure you use the liquid. It is ok if some of the seeds escape into a cup when pouring. Drink the liquid slowly. Wait half an hour and then enjoy your breakfast. You can then enjoy the rest of the kissel before going to bed. It is better to cook the kissel in the evening to have it ready for the following morning and then the rest in the evening. It has to be cooked fresh every day. Alternatively, you can put the same amount of seeds into a thermal flask and brew it for hours shaking it occasionally. My symptoms improved significantly after using the kissel for less than a week. My grandma recommends using it for a few months even though the symptoms went away. It will heal your body completely from an acid damage.

      If you have any questions please ask.
