I am wondering how one night of binge drinking could give you a lifetime of heartburn?? Please don't think I am questioning your call on this . . . I am just curious as to what could have happened. The reason I asked about the vomiting is I was wondering if perhaps the drinking caused you to throw up violently and then caused a hiatal hernia which would explain the constant heartburn. Have you ever had an endoscopy to see what might be going on in there?
