When I eat something and it bothers me, it usually doesn't start until at least an hour after I've eaten. Usually about two. Then it can last a really, really long time (six or seven hours and occasionally even more).

I'm wondering if that is consistent with what you guys experience?

For me, it starts about 1 1/2 to 2 hours after I've eaten. I can't say how long it lasts because as soon as it starts, I take a Tums, even though I am on Nexium.

Man, I wish tums would work for me. Once it gets to that point it seems like there's nothing I can do other than to wait it out.

Yes, I also feel fine at first until about an hour or 1-1/2 hrs later. Debaser, for a while I kept a bottle of oregano by my bed and chewed about a 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon of it. It's AWFUL, and it burns, so it's probably not the best thing for the esophagus, but it worked several times.

FYI While I'm thinking about it, the one non-food thing that consistently helps at night, when my indigestion is always at its worst, is a HOT SHOWER before bed.
