    That sucks Have you tried some kind of antacid? Quickeze or Gaviscon or something? Keep a close eye on it though, if it gets any worse or you get an dodgy looking stools etc. Do you normally react to anti-inflams like that?

    I have heard they can make you sick, my mum gets pretty sick off them.

    Hope you feel better soon, no ideas on how to fix it though.

    I might try gaviscon actually, I've got some of that. I've never taken them before without having a full meal beforehand, I've felt a bit off from them before but nothing this bad. It seriously feels like my tum is on fire. I've tried drinking heaps and still sore after eating dinner. That will teach me! Thanks for the advice.

    Do you have a healthline number/nurse on call you can ring? As I'm sure you are feeling it's not great to have them on an empty stomach so maybe they can point you in the right direction as to what to do.

    Thank you, Im starting to feel a bit better now but if it doesn't get better overnight I do have a number I can call x

    Must admit I was worried I totally burnt my stomach because it was really quite painful!
