    Omeprazole is supposed to help but I still get it from stress. Stupid people and computers that don't work properly give me heartburn. :-)

  • I am certain I read elsewhere that spicy foods DO NOT cause heartburn. However I do know that the only times I get heartburn is when I am upset at work. - 2/26/2012 6:50:57 PM

  • I've found that 2 things help mine a lot - one is losing weight, and the other is avoiding carbohydrates. Last year when I lost 25lb on a low carbohydrate diet, the heartburn vanished entirely. When I started eating "normally" again, including carbohydrates, and regained all but 4lb, the heartburn returned with a vengeance. - 4/5/2011 3:02:11 PM
  • Good advice- I have GERD symptoms at various times of the day and after eating a variety of food. Noting times and foods will help me pinpoint what is causiing my GERD.

  • Food allergies also contribute to GERD. My GERD largely abated after my celiac disease diagnosis and eating gluten-free. I control it with eating smaller meals more often - and I eat more alkaline-based foods (ie fruits and veggies). The food diary is SUCH a great tool. IgG antibody tests might be helpful too! - thanks for the article. - 2/24/2008 4:20:02 PM
