    Heartburn?

    Little back story, I was diagnosed with GERD over 4 years ago.. exactly 1 year ago I completely quit smoking (3 years smoking) and switched to snus.. since that day.. my heartburn went from.. 1 - 5 times a day to once every couple weeks IF that. Now last week my local snus dealer was totally out of loose.. which is all i do now as portions give me no fix anymore.. so I tryed some of a work buddys skoal wintergreen.. I bought a can of cope last week and a can of skoal both withergreen and i have had worse heartburn in the past four days than i have in over a year..

    does anyone else get heartburn from dip? and why would smoking/dip both do it but swedish snus does not? Do the swedish put (or not put) something crazy in their tobacco to make it work that much better for me?

    Smoking didn't bother me, and I haven't used enough dip to get problems. Snus that has smoke flavor gives me heartburn if I use too much. I have to be careful not use smoked snus too many times in a row. Unfortunately, SM uses smoke a lot, and they have some of the only snus that matches the flavor profiles, style I want, and is available to Americans.

      I never get heartburn from snus but I do get it from dip and I don't swallow much dip just what little runs down the throat.

          I get heartburn from swallowing dip and snus juice every now and then and it is usually because I keep it in longer then usual and it starts to disintegrate.

          Lower lipping also creates more juice which can unintentially be swallowed more then upper decking.

            I used to dip copenhagen a can every 2 days. Never swallowed but got terrible heartburn towards the end. I actually think it was from lack of swallowing saliva. Obviously it wasn't always like that. Think it started as I got older and got progressively worse. Now it may only take one dip to set it off.....
