The fastest solution may be a teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in a cup of water. But long term you may actually need more stomach acid (called hydrochloric acid) and not less. along with digestive enzymes. If the stomach has too little acid, food will ferment, causing bloating and irritation. Long term use of acid blocking medication may lead to B12 deficiency, causing mental health issues, as well as other nutritional deficiencies. Food is supposed to be broken down by stomach acid so that nutrients can be absorbed. Also, check to see if there are digestive side-effects from the prescription medication you are taking.
Try over the counter acid reflux medications like Prilosec for a week. If Symptoms does not get better or get worst please see a foctor

As below, try Zantac or Pepcid. If this gets rid of your symptoms, then the symptoms are likely from acid reflux. If this becomes a common problem or if the medicines do not help your symptoms, see your doctor.
Check with your health provider to possibly discover having present problematic symptoms of "acid-reflux". If this is the probblem, then consume more fruit, nuts, whole-grains & vegetables....OK??!! Thanks for your cooperation...
You may be having symptoms of acid reflux. Drinking ample amounts of water may help as well as consuming probiotics such as yogurt. There may be bacteria in your GI tract causing this sensation. Also consuming whole grain foods and foods high in fiber should alleviate the problem.

Heartburn can first be treated with H2 Blocker such as Zantac or Pepcid. If this is a recurrent issues, you should use a PPI such as omeprazole. If you continue to have symptoms, I would recommend a medical evaluation.

THis is very unclear. Did you smoke with a mug of milk? or did you eat fish you had smoked? Chest and stomach burning is not always due to heartburn, but most often, symptoms of sour taste in mouth, burping and burning in the middle of the chest can be due to reflux. Most reflux treatments are sold over the counter, but I recommend that you try probiotics if you really have an upset stomach.

Digestive enzymes are best in the long run but I am assuming you want a short term solution. A half teaspoon of baking soda can help put out the fire for now. then I would suggest you use digestive enzymes. I would also like to know if you have had problems with milk before. Many people are allergic to dairy.
