If you need fast heartburn relief there are a few things that you probably have on hand at home that can help enormously. We have all experienced that tight sharp pain that goes with heartburn, and wished we had a heartburn home remedy on hand. What causes heart burn and what's causing the pain?
It is interesting that in French, heartburn is translated as "crise de foie." Literally translated "Crise" is "crisis" and "Foie" is "Liver." So what is happening is that your liver is in crisis, and that is what is causing the pain. It has nothing to do with the heart. Unless of course you are mistaking the pain and you are having a heart attack, which can happen.
Please note, if the pain is severe do get to the hospital immediately!
