I would suffer from this every single day back when I was eating normal. Then my mom talked me into eating healthy and it pretty much dissapeared.

The other thing was that I laid off spicy (mainly because I went completely broke and couldn't afford my precious Jalapeños anymore) but here be my greatest dilemma: I McFuckin' love spicy.

I've been doing without because, as I mentioned, I haven't been able to get spicy stuff since I'm the only one in the household that likes spicy, so now I don't know if I should resort to only eating spicy once in a while hoping that it'll cause less chestal pain, or just live through the pain every once in a while in favor of spicy, or just cut it all off. It sucks. First world problems. Cheeki-breeki.

Any of ya'll that suffer from this? How do you guys cope? I'm desperate.

I suffer from it real bad.

Honestly I should go with the better diet route.

In reality, I get a shed load of acid-supressing drugs that I shouldn't really have from my diabetic uncle, and lots of Gaviscon.

So that works for me unless I forget to take the pill, which means I won't sleep that night because my chest will be on fire.

I'm a medical disaster at this point.

I've never knowingly had heartburn. I'm not sure what it feels like, but the name sounds painful.

It's like someone poured acid down your throat, set it on fire and kept it in place for the duration of the day.

I was taking some pills my mom have that really helped a lot. Now, if I should've been taking them or not, I have no idea. It's truly a crappy feeling though. Worse is not really knowing the cause and when you find out, staying away from said delicious cause. I've heard milk helps too, but I've never found it helped on the long run. Maybe for a few minutes, but no more than that.

If you eat spicy stuff that's also rather coconutty, like a Thai green curry, does that balance things out a bit and alleviate some of the problem?

I had it really bad for a period, but it seems to have subsided. I do eat significantly less, and I don't really eat as many spicy foods as I used to. I guess that could be the culprit?

Mind you, the acid reflux that accompanied it was enough to make me want to just quit eating for the rest of the day >.>

Question: Did you experience this when you were still living south of the equator?

It is common around here too. But here the symptoms are slightly different. Instead of the throat, you get the burning, heavy sensation in the central chest region. Also, there is pain on the left side (heart side) and the chest feels like being pressed by a huge rock. That's heartburn for South Asians.

So then. Fortunately we have several herbal remedies for that. Although it has been sometime since I got it last time (and I didn't use the herbal remedies then) but I have prepared the herbal formula (known as Triphla) for some other reasons (it helps with sleep and mental freshness too).

For me, it is only-meat-no-wheat diet that causes it. Even if I eat roasted meat without any spice, I get that. For all you guys who get that due to high spice intake, there's a herbal remedy which should help. Take several raw bananas (green and rather hard, as compared to ripened soft, yellow), peel off the skins and place the pulp in sunlight to dry. Once dried completely (might take 5-6 days, as you guys get very less sunlight), grind them up into a powder. Take two teaspoonfuls of this unripened-dried-banana powder everyday for as long as the heartburn persists.

Actually all that it does is that it creates a layer of acid resistant veneer in your stomach so that the acid does not attack the stomach lining. This also enables your stomach to heal by growing back its natural acid-resistant layer. This layer is destroyed if you take too much spicy food consistently for sometime.

Holy shit I have forgotten all about this remedy. Thanks mate.

Sounds like a great weekend to me.
