Thanks for your question.
Since when do you have this burning type of pain? Which antacids did you use? Did they relieve your symptoms? Did you consult your doctor? Were any investigations done?
Thanks for your reply.
At this point, yes, that would be a good next step. You can either take zantac or prilosec (available OTC) which will both decrease the acid production in the stomach and reduce your symptoms. These medications will provide longer relief. In most cases these medications will be beneficial, however you may need to contact your doctor if you need to take these medications for longer than two to three weeks or if your symptoms are not relieved.
