Fire Breathing Dragon...
The last few months that I was on BCP I had heartburn that would knock me out. I couldn't do anything. I couldn't stand, I couldn't sit, I definitely couldn't lay down. It hurt to eat and it hurt to drink. There were at least a few days when I thought I was having a heart attack. Tums and Rolaids couldn't even touch it, my prescription meds only worked half of the time and I was miserable. I finally decided that enough was enough and that I would give up the BCP in order to have my normal heartburn free life back. Things have been great since then. Now I only get "the burn" once a month, for one day in my LP and an over the counter Zantac kills it quite quickly.

This is not the case this month. I have HEARTBURN and I think I am going to die. I don't know if it was the abundance of rich food I ate in Mexico, or maybe all of the beer/wine/margaritas/mojitos that I drank... but I have been miserable for seven days now! Of course, it started the night we left for Mexico... so I can't blame it all on over eating/drinking. I can't make it go away and it is mixed with nausea. I am a fire breathing dragon... please someone make it go away!
