Heartburn in the mornings
Good day doctor
Why is it that I get terrible heartburn immediately after having my cereal.
I am 35, have my 2 weetbixes with extra bran with half milk, half hot water just before 8 in the morning.
Immediately after having it, I start burping, get this burning sensation in my chest and it can go on for more that an hour?
If I have boiled eggs for breakfast, it hardly happens.
