Talking To Your Doctor About Your Heartburn

By September 13, 2013

Follow me on:

When people suffer from chronic illnesses, they often seek their doctors' advice on what is wrong with them and how to treat it. When it comes to chronic heartburn (heartburn that occurs two or more times a week), they may not be as quick to talk to their doctors about it. They may rationalize that all they that's needed is for them to skip the spicy foods, or the big dinners at Aunt Sally's. Chronic heartburn, however, can be a sign of something more serious. It is important to know when to talk to your doctor about your heartburn. You should know the symptoms to watch for. It is also a good idea to know how to prepare for your appointment.
