    arrrrrrgh! :x

    just happened again!!

    Me swallows half eh garlic and I get chest pains like I'm about to get a heart attack!
    I mean, I can feel the garlic stuck in me chest area and it lasts for about 10+minutes.
    It already happened to me serval times now and if anyone can gimme some tips or
    tell me why this shyt happens i'll appreciate it gr8ly.

    Just a few notes:
    I do drink alot of water with it and it seems to only temporarely help but after half
    a min teh pain gets back.

    aww and usually teh garlic half size(i eat it in 2 halfs, usually 3 thierds also)
    will be like 1cmx1inch surface and about 1/2 cm deep(assuming that I 8 a half of garlic, not eh theird).


    plzzzzz halp!!!

    p.s. lawl, by the end of this post teh pain be gone already xD
    okay, 2nd half now... *gulp*

    EDIT:
    well, teh not-so-fool me came to teh conclussion that eating smaller pieces helps..
    but I still need some ideas on how to overcome this pain when I 4get and swallow pic pieces like eh fool... :/


    Good Brother

    Try Gaviscon or Tums...
    When i was pregnant i had the same thing, imense chest pain as though it wes gonna crack or i was gonna have a heart attack...
    This can be caused by stomach acid and indegestion and feels like you have discribed...
    Nothing is imediate and gaviscon takes about 4 or 5 mins to kick in so try that...
    If not you should probably see a doctor...

    Members of the onion family, like garlic, are often associated with acid reflux. Basically, the pain is caused by some stomach acid making it's way into your esophagous and burning you.

    Avoid acidic and spicy foods if it bothers you a lot.
