Heartburn is common, but it is not trivial. It's important to diagnose and treat heartburn or acid reflux as early as possible. Review diagnostic procedure now...
For the last few weeks or so, I've had what feels like a recurring heartburn sensation. My doctor checked me out and said it was probably a muscular strain, but it sure doesn't feel like it. He suggested Aleve, but that didn't work. Also, I've been taking Pepcid on a regular basis for several months now for an unrelated issue*. I'm wondering if that could be working against me, as I'd expect it to reduce the likelihood of heartburn symptoms. Any ideas?

*For what it's worth, I'm not convinced that Pepcid is the proper solution to my other problem, but the specialist who prescribed it believes otherwise.
