How do you treat your heartburn? Seems like everything is calcium based like Tums and since calcium inhibits the absorption of the thyroid meds I cant take it. I read I shouldnt consume tums 1hr before or 4hrs after taking my thyroid meds. I take my meds twice a day so there isnt a window between the two doses that i can take tums. Later in the evening i can take them but that isnt until around dinner time. What do I do about heartburn during the day??
(I may be pg, which could be causing more heartburn but i have been having it for a while now and Im not sure why, i dont really eat much that would cause heartburn normally)

I chew gum, drink a lot of water, or drink A&W root beer. Weird, I know. Usually I will get heartburn when my levels are off, and I assume that means my metabolism has slowed down, thus causing the heartburn. For me, I also know certain foods now trigger heartburn for me now that I'm in my 30's. (Nothing used to really trigger heartburn when I was younger, lol!) I know you said you don't eat that much that would cause it, so maybe you are indeed pregnant! I could be way off base here, but I think I've heard sassafras helps relieve it?
