Why do you miss when my baby kisses me?

I agree with you, though. Horrid stuff

Indigestion.

Gaviscon relief.

Not sure I’ve ever knowingly had this. Do some people just not experience it or is it likely I have and just didn’t know what it was?

Suffered very badly from this until I got on the Omeprazole train.

Nah the first time you have it you’ll think you’re dying

Had really bad sympathy heartburn when my partner was pregnant 2 years ago. That was so odd and horrible as I’d never had it before and it lasted months. Totally fine now, but yeah, a fucker.

Tell me more

Went to the doctor a few years ago with really bad heartburn and acid reflux and got prescribed Omeprazole. I take one every day and it’s changed my life. Eat what I want.

Another vote for omeprazole, absolute game changer.

Think Nexium is the same stuff and in most shops if you can’t be arsed to sort a prescription

Yeah agreed. Had my first experience with it about two years ago and like you said I was pretty sure I was dying in the middle of the night. Don’t get it super often but often enough that I make sure to always have some non-prescription pills on hand.

Weirdly feel like drinking something really acidy like orange juice helps when it’s happening

Remember phoning my nan after getting it a number years ago. A sly chuckle an instruction to ingest mint. Not fun

@gonad thanks I’m gonna ask for this cos I’m sick of it and medication feels preferable to never eating cheese again

Can confirm. Always wondered if I’d ever had it until I actually had it, then I knew. I was driving to work and had to pull over, thought I was having a massive heart attack or something. Not that it was the heart, just something in the chest I had never experienced before that was definitely not good. Rarely got it after that and since, and never as bad as that time.

These are an absolute lifesaver, quite expensive, but very very good
