My husband does. He wakes up with the acid coming up and makes it hard to breath and he rarely gets heartburn.
The other day, my grandma told me that "us kids these days" (and by that she means 40 and younger, lol) are wimps. She said "we didn't run to the doc when we had a lil' burning in our belly, heart burn, or a tummy ache and you didn't pop pills or run to Thrifty's and buy some tums"- she said you dealt with it by eating better and not eating so late.
I was like grandma, I'm not a wimp...now where is the Zantac cuz you stressing me out is going to lead to heartbun. LOL.
