    Re: Why seniors will face heart burn problems?

    Are you asking for medical advice here? We are not qualified to give medical advice.

    The immediate way to become comfortable is to take a very cheap antacid tablet with "alginate" or "alginic" in the list of ingredients. Acifix, Acigon, Riflux or Visco tablets.

    If the tablet doesn't bring relief within ten minutes then the problem is rarer, more serious and needs a doctor to check for angina or a gastric ulcer.

    If the tablet works then the problem is stomach acid rising upward, "reflux", in which case:
    1. Sleeping with the head and shoulders slightly raised might help stop the heartburn from beginning.

    2. Frequent heartburn is most often a symptom of worry or mental stress. That's why seniors are so often affected, they have more worries. If that isn't stopped then the problem will keep coming back.

    3. The more money your neighbour has, the more expensive and more dangerous his medical treatment for reflux will become.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Re: Why seniors will face heart burn problems?

    I had acid reflux a couple of months back. Breathed it into my windpipe while asleep and choked. Had to get a housemate to call an ambulance. Fortunately as I began to pass out I relaxed a bit, and that allowed me to get just enough air to cough it out. Closest I've been to death that I can recall. When it happened again I deliberately relaxed and was able to clear it quite quickly.

    I found raising the top third of the bed 3 or 4 cm was enough to stop it (doctor's advice), combined with cutting out alcohol, caffeine and chilies completely (I was also told to cut out chocolate, but luckily that doesn't seem to affect me Not sure caffeine is a big factor either, but I've other reasons to cut that out)

    That sounds terrifying, it makes your survival sound like random chance.

    It was.

    Chuckle. I've reached that age when you go to the doctor and he says, "You know everything you like? Stop it."

    Re: Why seniors will face heart burn problems?

    Heart burn or Acid reflux is usually common in older folk. However, if your neighbor is experiencing epigastric pain or heartburn associated with pain on the left shoulder and shortness of breath. Its better for him to go for a checkup with a professional because it may be due to a more serious condition sucjh as a heart attack. if he has no companion at home, its better if he seeks professional help or should get admitted in order for him to be monitored closely

    Yup, you are right docjames. The problem of my neighbour is more series and also suggested to visit a specialist before it turns to more critical condition and their children are going to come this month end. Hope they will take care of their elders well.

    I'm pleased the children are still concerned despite living so far away.
