Hey there short. I am sorry you are feeling this. It is normal for people to get heartburn at certain times of the day. Can you eat lunch earlier than 2 or 3? The reason I ask is because it is easier for acid to act up on an empty stomach, so it is best to eat several small meals throughout the day, rather than 3 regular meals. If you constantly keep food in your stomach, you will have less chance of heartburn.
You ask if you should see a doctor, and my answer is, yes, definately. A doctor can help you figure out what is going on, and give you the relief you need. There is no reason to suffer needlessley!
Also, as apposed to Rolaids...you could try a liquid antacid. Some say those work better, as they coat your throat and your stomach.
Please, keep us updated as to how you are feeling, and let us know if you go to the doctor!
