Q: Can you experience heartburn symptoms when hungry?

I experience heartburn-like symptoms frequently. At first I thought I had heart problems, but after a couple of trips to the ER my physician says it could be heartburn or GERD. I get heartburn at the strangest times, when I workout, when I am still hungry, and when waking up. Is this still heartburn or another problem my doctor is unaware of?

I often have increased heartburn at the same times you describe. Working out can be difficult for me to schedule. It has to be long enough after I ate but not so long that I'm hungry.


Did your doctor suggest any treatment? You may want to try some of the lifestyle things that you can read about here:
