    Anybody know any good remedies to get rid of this? I've never in my life gotten heart burn at work before. I'm dying here!

    an antacid. not being a smartass, that's what heartburn is - acid in your esophagus, where it is not supposed to be. taking an antacid will help neutralize it.

    baking soda :nod:

    about a teaspoon or so dissolved in a glass of water

    Isn't milk supposed to soothe this? I've never had heartburn personally but I believe someone mentioned that remedy before.

    coke contains phosphoric acid, so you're adding acid to acid.

    and yeah, i've had my share of heartburn.

    acutally no, calcium and protein contribute to production of gastric juices (acid)
    ------
    coke might help you burp, relieving an overly-full feling, but yeah, the phosphoric acid in coke and other colas can contribute to bone loss, because your body will want to maintain its natural acid/base balance, and will take calcium from your bones to neutralize the phosphoric acid in colas
