we r now back to two fears its either cancer or heart

So you eat some relatively spicy food for the first time in a long time, get some heartburn, and think it's cancer or your heart?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

You're having typical symptoms of heartburn and reflux and nothing more

And I guess you've never tried the Prilosec?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

oy no didnt try it. but pls doc tell me why cantbit be cancer if just a little bit of spicy food can dotjat plus itbescalates in tonpanic.

Cancer doesn't ever present this way--most often it never causes anything like heartburn or reflux symptoms. Nothing you've ever told me about this has ever come close to sounding like cancer so you need to put that out of your mind. Please try the Prilosec and for now stay away from spicy foods.
