    I am curious to know if anyone on this board suffers from heartburn while diving. At present I have 2 students who suffer from heart burn and I know of another very competent Instructor that also must take a tums before every dive. Is this a common problem with divers...does anyone know what might casue this, or ways...other than medication...to deal with this issue?
