Health Tip: Talk to Your Doctor About Heartburn

-- Your doctor can suggest ways to cope with heartburn, but it's up to you to start the conversation.

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests:

  • Ask about recommended over-the-counter heartburn medications.
  • Discuss possible causes and triggers of your heartburn, and what you can do to manage it.
  • Talk about lifestyle changes that you can make.
  • Ask about other health conditions that could be causing your heartburn.
  • Discuss your favorite foods and whether they may be contributing to your heartburn.
