Constant heartburn
I have been over weight for almost two years. Two months ago I started excercising and dieting (through Wiegh-less). My problem is that I experience quite bad heartburn in the afternoons and evenings. Antacids only help for half an hour to an hour. What can the problem be? It caneither be my diet or the excercise. Please help!!

Dear Weet nie meer
Try Zantac 75mg twice a day if you are not allergic to anything? You may have a slight hiatus hernia.
