    7 hrs? that's not heartburn, you may have GERD or something along those lines

    inflammation for that length of time is not normal, especially if it can't be neutralize by a base

    a doctor can give you a proper diagnosis

    If what you say is true that its still there after 7 hours then, that's more than a regular heartburn. Heartburns, of what I know, is suppose to last for just a few minutes not hours. You should consult a doctor for that--just to be on the safe side.

    If you have it all the time you will probably need an acid blocker to prevent acid buildup, like Pepcid, Zantac or Prilosec. These are all over the counter and you can get Pepcid and Zantac generic (Famotidine and Rantitidine). If you have a good presription plan you can ask your doctor for a prescription for stronger agents like these.

    Heartburn happens when you eat much. The acids from your stomach is coming up to your throat thus feeling the "hurtburn". Minimize your eating & drink water so you wont produce more acids.
