Resolved Question:

Hi, I went out to dinner last night, rushed my food as i was very hungry, also i had quite a lot of wine and bubbly. Later I felt sick but was not and then when i work up today i am suffering with heartburn and find it difficult to swallow food or drink. I have taken some gaviscon tablets but they do not seem to have made any difference. What do you recommend please?
