oatmeal heartburn

Yep, straight up plain oatmeal even only 1/4 of a cup, will give me fierce heartburn.

Why is this? No other food causes this, not one, no meat, fruit or any other grain will cause heartburn.

A: Thats the same as happens to me sometimes.

But I am beginning to nitice that I only get heartburn after eating oatmean IF my tummy has alot of acid’s.

Because beer and orange juice or any other citric fruit will raise the amount of acid in your stomach. If oatmeal being injested afther period of acidy goods. You def will get heartburn.

The scale of aids in food and body is: Acid – alkaline.
Alkaline being the opposite of acidic.

Keeping the balance is the way to go.
If you balance it. You can eat oatmeal without getting heartburn. too much acidic food will cause pain.

I really suggest you to take a look at the following web page:

Q: Oatmeal and heartburn?
I posted that question already earlier but didn’t get a usefull reply.
I never had trouble with heartburn until the end of my pregnancy. Then I had severe heartburn. I suppose because the growing baby left no room for my stomach. After delivery heartburn was gone. I started eating oatmeal because I thought it would be a good breakfast option, and because I read it helps with the milk supply.For a couple of weeks now I have heartburn again, it is a lot less than when I was pregnant fortunately. I notice it often after I had my morning bowl of oatmeal = plain oatmeal+ 4 grain flakes from the health food store (look like oatmeal from different grains)+ sprinkle of mixed nuts and seeds+ cold milk.
It isn’t the milk, because if I have some without the cereal I am fine. Could oatmeal be the culprit – I always thought oatmeal is healthy? Would cooking the oatmeal help?I am not a real fan of hot cereal though. Did anyone actually experience an increase of milk supply,or is that a myth.?
I had the question posted at ‘diet and fitness’ but came back here because people here give better answers it seems. And it also concerns breastfeeding in some way.

A: Try eating just the oatmeal by itself for a while. Maybe its the mixture of all the stuff.

Q: I have missed my period. I ate my favorite oatmeal cookies and I have heartburn. I took a prg test on the 14?
on june 14 and it was neg. It was suppose to have come on june 11 what could it be?

A: yup do again

Q: How the hell does oatmeal give you heartburn?
how retarded is that?
I get it everytime I eat that crap, but a good ol burger on the other hand…

A: I find if you drink a fiffed of vodica, you don’t feel nothin

Q: why does oatmeal give me heartburn?

A: My husband gets heartburn from bread sometimes.

Some people’s stomachs are just more sensitive than others. It sometimes depends on what you put in your food. Cinnimon is yummy in oatmeal, but it can give some people heartburn. I would suggest changing what you put in your oatmeal and see if there’s a specific ingredient that is causing your heartburn.

If it is not just oatmeal, but a wide variety of food giving you problems, you may have a bigger problem than heartburn. Gastric reflux disease is defined as frequent heartburn that is not relieved by over the counter medicines. If left untreated, it can lead to holes in your esophagus and even cancer. Your doctor can give you some medicine that will help. My hubby is on Prevacid and it is working wonders.

Q: why am i getting heartburn from eating oatmeal??

A: Don’t use hot sauce on Oatmeal…

Q: anyone else skipping lunch because their oatmeal gave em heartburn?

A: The only oatmeal that gives me heartburn is the one that is full of iron. All the other ones are okay.

Q: Pregnant with heartburn?
I am 18 weeks pregnant and have never had heartburn before in my life, but am starting to get it now. This can be normal, right?

How do I deal with it? I didn’t eat anything spicy, just oatmeal and a plum for breakfast. Is there anything I can do about it?

Thanks!

A: It is very normal to get heartburn when pregnant because your body is in constant change as the baby develops. The plum probably was the culprit because of the acid. Most people don’t think about the acid content in fruit which becomes more potent when pregnant. To make yourself deal with it just eat a slice of white bread (not wheat or any other)because that will absorb the acid. You can also eat saltine crackers(good old fashion square cracker) because they also absorb.

Q: heartburn at 37 weeks?
i think im just getting impatiant for my baby to come so this probally donest really mean anything at all but i woke up this morning with HORRIBLE heartburn.last night i had a ton of water and a piece of pizza.today ive had oatmeal toast and milk and its just getting worse.i only had very little heartburn when i was first pregnant from eating salty things.but today its been very bad and nothing seems to be helping.last night before bed i also had real bad swelling in my feet my knees face and hands.does this by any chance mean anything?!(babycomming soon ect)

A: It’s a fact that heartburn and the amount of hair a baby has at birth are related, the more heartburn the more hair. Have you tried sleeping in a reclined position instead of laying down?That might help. As for the swelling, your guess is as good as mine.

Q: Am I having heartburn? Help im only 12?
well last 3 days i notice im having a mild pain in my chest. im not overweight either. im 12 and weigh about 82 pounds. as i said its really mild. i already told my mom she said for me to wait and see how it feels in a couple of days. my diet isnt that bad. i try to eat something healthy everyday. like milk, fruits, oatmeal etc. is this something that will go away? and i only notice it if i run or do martial arts.

A: wthell calm down u probably had to much ketchup or salt that happened to me everytime when i was young and once and a while now im 11

Q: so i get to move to this section!!! question about medicine?
I just took a test and well bfp. im about 5 weeks and i have horrible heartburn and head aches.. I kind of knew i was pregnant and just worked thru most of them, but the heartburn is getting pretty bad.. The head aches are mostly in the morning and i can deal with that if i have to but the heart burn oman, even oatmeal does it. Any one have any home remidies or know of something i can take?

A: You could try milk or ice cream. Its a good reason to indulge in a little ice cream. If not go ahead and get a bottle of tums, they have calcium and are perfectly fine during pregnancy. I personally preferred the chewy rolaids, also fine in pregnancy. And you can take tylenol during pregnancy too, its safe. Just DON’T TAKE ASPIRIN. Good luck!

Q: Can’t tell if this is the flu or not?
About seven days ago, I all of a sudden got sick. My tummy felt horrible, I got a headache, cough, light headed, weak, tired ECT. It literally hit me all at once. Stayed in bed for two days straight, literally. At nothing but Chicken noodle soup that my bestie made for me. & drank nothing but water. I got heartburn the following day of being sick. I took alka seltzer flu, thera flu. I has received some antibiotics a couple months ago, but ended up not needing to take them. I took them incase it wasn’t the flu. The cough kept up, my body ached HORRIBLE & I was SO exhausted for no reason. I didn’t go to work. I don’t smoke, nothing. My Daddy told me it was probably the flu. I stayed low, didn’t do anything for about five days. I started feeling better, still taking it easy, but yesterday, I got diarrhea & the heartburn came back baaaad. I hadn’t eaten regular food, just tomato soup, and chicken noodle soup, but yesterday I had mac n cheese plus oatmeal. I still have the heartburn, diarrhea, HORRIBLE body aches, exhaustion ECT. It’s like it went away but came back 2x as bad as it was before.

Like I said. I take care of myself. Vitamins, run 2+ miles daily, eat healthy, don’t smoke, rarely drink. I don’t have insurance so seeing a Doctor isn’t an option. Any suggestions or explanations would be greatly appreciated!

A: sounds like the H1 N1 or the N1H1, whatever it is. I’m just coming off of a six day bout with it. Eat light, drink heavy. Sleep with a pile of pillows to help with the hearburn. The diarrhea is normal with this stuff. Pamper yourself, stay away from everyone else. Mine appeared to go away and come back again as well. You should be fine as lone as your temp doesn’t go above 101-102. Takes a good ten days to recover.

Q: I think I have the flu but I my symptoms keep changing&I feel yucky!?

A: If you aren’t having a lot of trouble breathing, or coughing up a lot of green phlegm from fluid in your lungs, you should be fine. Try eating a clove of garlic each day. It works much the same as an antibiotic but it also works on viruses. So in that sense, the garlic may actually be better.

Q: Need help with a stomach issue?
Okay, for the past few months, sporadically I have been having this really bad abdominal bloating whenever I eat something. Occurs especially in the morning when I have cereal. It doesn’t resolve very fast and is accompanied by a lot of belching.
This morning I had this really bad pain kinda like burning pain in the pit of my stomach with really bad heartburn (after I had my oatmeal cereal), and immense bloating, making my stomach look like a cantaloupe it disappeared after I had lunch…though the bloating didn’t go away.
I belch quite a lot, and my stomachs really bloated. most of the time. These occur like episodes most of the time, (the bloating and the heartburn that is) No one else in my family has em. I don’t eat out much too.
Theres no nausea and vomiting though….
Any idea what it could be??

A: Its clear tat u suffer from a kinda gastro problem.
the condition is not critical as u don’t have nausea.So it can’t be an ulcer.
But be preventive.
Take more fibre, avoid spice. Avoid tension too as it triggers belching.

Q: Weight loss plan. Will it work?
I’m not huge (as in, no protruding stomach and large man boobs), but I am overweight. However, I do want to improve my health a bit and I think with the weight loss plan I’ve come up with might do the trick. I think 15-20 pounds will put me at perfect. Not to mention the fact that I think it will improve my overall health. So here it goes:

Monday – Sunday (minus me being at work on Saturday and Sunday, so I’ll probably increase the number of times I exercise those days, and stay with the same diet).

Morning: Either a bowl of Cheerios and a fruit of some sort, a yogurt, or a bowl of oatmeal. Whichever I’m in the mood for I suppose. Then work out for the 15-25 minutes of free time I have before I have to leave for work. Not sure as to what to do for a 15-25 minute workout, perhaps a quick stretch and a little Tai Chi?

Afternoon (during work): Tomato (perhaps a little turkey?) on toasted whole wheat bread. No condiment, because I don’t really like condiments. Perhaps for a snack about an hour or so after lunch, maybe just a tomato, since I absolutely love tomatoes. I don’t really have much time to do much at work, but if I can pull off another 25 minute deal, maybe the same routine as the morning will work?

Evening: Never had a problem eating relatively healthy dinners. Usually it’s some type of meat with veggies (fish included), or some spaghetti. My appetite isn’t huge. It’s the company lunches and skipping of the breakfast (and of course, my lack of exercise) that I blame for the weight gain. At any rate, after dinner, 1 hour (or 2 if it’s swimming, because I love swimming) of either swimming / walking / or martial art.

If I’m in the mood for a snack at night, maybe a yogurt. Not only is it healthy, but it helps the hell out of my heartburn. Any insight on this plan would be greatly appreciated. Let me know! :)

A: sounds like a good plan and you’ve got some healthy meal ideas. i have to say the amount of exercise you plan might be a little excessive…especially if you don’t work out now. To start you may want to do 20 minutes a day – then eventually 30…etc. But I wouldn’t kill yourself to excerise 3 times a day. As it is you will see improvements since your body is not used to working out. Good luck!
