All night long I have had trouble sleeping because of heartburn. I know it is because I was stupid enough to eat a Drumstick (the kind without peanuts) right before bed (Not a regular thing by the way) and we have no antacids in the house.
However, every time I have heartburn, I think of my father, who had regular heartburn and acid reflux for about a year. When he finally went to the hospital, he found out he had cancer of the stomach, colon, and a couple of other organs that I can’t remember right now (possibly pancreas and liver).
I am almost positive there is no cancer going on. I’m pretty sure it can spread like wildfire, but I’m also pretty sure it wouldn’t go from zero to sixty in the few months since I have last seen a doctor.
