How do you treat it? Have you narrowed down any foods that may cause it? Do you eat it anyways?

For a while I was having heartburn daily.  However, since I've started eating much better, it has pretty much disappeared.  I do however still get it when I eat dairy products.  I have a feeling that I'm slightly lactose intolerant.  I will still have them from time to time, but make sure that I take an over the counter medication a few hours prior to try and keep the heartburn at bay.

Yes, I have it. It's gotten worse since I had my DD.

I don't know what causes it though I suspect it's the coffee. It's not terrible, but at night it will hit me and I get a bad episode then it's gone the rest of the night. I refuse to give up my coffee though. (I know, I know.)
