Thank you for your question.
Everyone has a lower esophageal sphincter (a valve) and this is found between your stomach and esophagus. This normally prevents reflux of acid and prevents heartburn. If this valve is weak or not working properly then what is in the stomach can come back up (reflux) causing heartburn. Exercise done correctly is in fact beneficial in reducing heartburn. For this one must not eat food for two hours before exercising and avoid exercise with lots of jumping. Walking is beneficial in such individuals who experience heartburn when they do exercise such as running. Therefore though heavy exercise with a lot of movements can trigger heartburn and cause the the lower esophageal sphincter to not work properly and therefore the food or stomach acid can move back up from your stomach into your esophagus, moderate exercise done with precautions will not trigger heartburn.

What is the dosage of lansoprazole that you have tried? What other medications have you tried?
Basically if you are not responding to lansaprazole then it is important that you have an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy done if you have not had one done till now. Also certain lifestyle modifications such as weight loss (if overweight) and elevation of head of the bed will be beneficial. Regarding medications you may consult your doctor about esomeprazole since this may be beneficial if you are not responding to lansaprazole.
