How long does indigestion last?

I've been having bouts of indigestion for about a month,and then Saturday night had another, and it is Tuesday morning and I'm still having it. I'm not in the same kind of pain I was Saturday night, but am still burping. This is kind ofgross to talk about, but it is what I'm calling, "dry burps" because there is no taste to them, or the feeling of anything coming back up in my throat. Every so often I have a kind of knife like pain in my chest, kinda under the bottom of my left breast. If this is just plain indigestion, does it last this long? I've been taking some medicine for indigestion since Saturday night. Thanks

    Hello, 2 years ago I was diagnosed with chronic acid reflux and a major inflammation in my esophagus and this program had done wonders for me. My heartburn and constant taste of acid in my mouth have all disappeared in less than 2 weeks

    I was prescribed Lansoprazole which was brilliant but after two years of aching joints, extreme muscle pain which the doc gave me cortisone jags for, with some research I discovered the drug Lansoprazole was causing these rare side effects but it was I who diagnosed it NOT my doctor, I came off the drug 2 months ago, changed my diet and discovered just eating an apple stops any acid reflux, I eat an apple before bed, brilliant no acid, any time I feel the slightest sign of reflux I simply eat an apple.

    Apple juice is not that good nor is anything else I have tried including honey at stopping reflux.

    * Carbo Veg 200 (liquid): take 6 drops of Carbo Veg 200 in half cup of water after meals twice a day

    * Natrum Phos 6x (tablets): take 4 tablets of Natrum Phos 6x after meals twice a day (for 2 months only)

    Drop Natrum Phos 6X after 2 months and continue with Carbo Veg 200.

    Note: Keep 30 minutes time difference between medicines and do not take anything after 30 minutes of taking medicines
