How much of it? Like a table spoon, or like a glass of it? I have been having the same issue as OP.

Like 1/8 of a cup with 1/8 cup water.

Quoting ☮HippyMama☮:" I think the taste of straight vinegar would just make me puke :( last night I woke up in so much pain ... [snip!] ... luck, a phobia of puking, and when my morning sickness is FINALLY going away I get heartburn so bad it makes me gag/puke. :cry:"


i had horrible pain like that too with my first. it lasted all night and i puked up the zantac so i went to the hospital. they checked my gallbladder and it was fine they said. so, i got dilaudid, pain went away, and i went home. my daughter was born 2 days later. i was fine for 6 years after that. then, all of a sudden, i got that pain again. i went to the doctor, and the said it was probably my gallbladder. i got an ultrasound, and it showed 2 stones, but my gallbladder was not 'rotten', so they left it alone. a month or so later, it happened again, i went to the ER, thinking they would take my gallbladder out finally and they did a cat scan and found it to be okay still, but still with 2 stones, so they shot me up with demerol and i went home.



the pain is terrible. you feel it all the way through to your back and all around the top of your stomach like someone put a rubber band on you and squeezed. and it feels like if you could stand up and straighten out, and just get a few inches taller, it would go away. but it doesn't.



i got pregnant about a month after the cat scan. i had almost no problems with heartburn/gallbladder stuff this time around.



i say if the pain is like what i described and doesn't go away, have them check your gallbladder.

take any vinegar you have, white vinegar seems to work the best, pour a tablespoon of it out and ingest. it does not taste very good and you can feel it go down but by the time it reaches your stomach, your heartburn is instantly gone!

It's not that severe, thankfully. Just if I overdo it with spicy - then it's bad. But lately it's like with DS1 - if I breathe I get heartburn. Or if I drink water. Or if I look at toast.

Papaya enzymes! They are pretty cheap at any health food store. I take them when heartburn happens, and then I take a few during the day, because they are just generally good for you. And the chewable ones taste like candy. For me they work better than anything else I've ever tried.
