SOURCE: my wife is pregnant and

This is an extremely common side effect of pregnancy. During pregnancy you have a few reasons for this:
1) Increase in progesterone, decreases the contractility of smooth muscle. Smooth muscle is what makes up the bulk of your Gastrointestinal Tract. This decreased contractility will lead to nausea, constipation and sometimes cramping.
2) Increase in abdominal size will lead to pressure on the GI tract especially the stomache causing heart burn and slowed emptying of the stomache.

Good Luck! I hope this helped!

How to treat acid reflux

There are a number of ways to treat acid reflux. First, you should be examined by a doctor to find the cause of your acid reflux, which is usually done by an Endoscopy and/or a study with a bravo capsule. However, if you want to treat it with over the counter remedies, here are a few things that can help.

Start out with the light acid reducers such as Cimetidine, and liquids such as Gaviscon, Mylanta, or liquid Rolaids. Some people find that chewables work better for them such as Rolaids.

If you still have acid reflux after using the light acid reducers, then you will want to try some of the "big boys" in the acid reducer category. Finding the right one is difficult, as it's different for everyone. Most people have good luck with a course of Prilosec OTC while others find little effect and prefer to try Zantac. In our household my significant other uses Prilosec OTC and I use Zegerid, I have worse acid reflux problems than he does including GERD, Esophagitis, and a Hiatal Hernia while he just has reflux and stomach ulcers.

If you've tried everything mentioned here, and still have heartburn, it's definitely time to see a doctor, if you haven't done so already. Prescription medications such as Sucralafate can help heal your stomach and solve problems such as eroded stomach lining often caused by acid reflux.

Good luck to you!

Gerd medication and treatment

To be honest, the best person to ask would be your GP/doctor. But it's possible your GERD could be causing damage to your throat/esophagus. (this isn't good for your teeth/throat at all).
Antacids, such as Maalox, Mylanta, Gelusil, Rolaids and Tums, may provide quick relief, for short term problems. It's non-prescription, quite easy to purchase from the pharmacy.
to reduce stomach acid production: (these are H-2-receptor blockers-H2 Blockers reduce acid production by blocking signals that tell the stomach to make acid) these medications include cimetidine (Tagamet HB), famotidine (Pepcid AC), nizatidine (Axid AR) or ranitidine (Zantac 25, Zantac 75, Zantac 150). H-2-receptor blockers don't act as quickly as antacids, but they provide longer relief.
Proton pump inhibitors block acid production and allow time for damaged esophageal/throat tissue to heal. Over-the-counter proton pump inhibitors include lansoprazole (Prevacid 24 HR) and omeprazole (Prilosec OTC).
However, if you want a proper diagnosis, it's always best to see your doctor. :)
