Health Tip: Talk to Your Doctor About Heartburn

(HealthDay News) -- 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.
