Heartburn after bulimia

How long did you have bulimia for? Are you now heartburn free because I suffer terrible heartburn even though I am in recovery, which stops me from being able to run and exercise in general due to the pain?

Shaye Says

Hi there,

I had bulimia for the best part of 10, 11, 12 years. I never suffer from heartburn anymore.

My mom suffers from pretty bad heartburn - but she swears by a product called mylanta.... She says the relief is almost instant... You might want to give it a try?

If this doesn't help, or if you are really concerned, I'd suggest visiting your doctor. They will be able to point you in the right direction!

Congratulations on being in recovery! Your body will settle down in time :)
