Wondering if any one has experienced this... I've been having occasional heartburn with this pregnancy, and two nights ago it was the worst. I woke up with a horrible sore throat that did not go away all day. I went to urgent care for a strep test, which was negative. The sore throat is a little better today and since I have no other cold symptoms. was wondering if it could be a side effect of the heartburn?

Yes! I get this with my heartburn when pregnant. It is from laying down while having heartburn. The stomach acid can creep up and kind of burn your throat. Try to not eat for a couple hours before bed or drink a glass of milk before bed. Heartburn is no fun!!

Interesting. I never had very bad heartburn with my last pregnancy, but I had terrible, terrible dry mouth--I would have dreams about not being able to drink water, and I would wake up barely able to swallow--had to keep lozenges by the bed. I wonder if my heartburn was a bigger factor than I remember?

Yes, heartburn can definitely cause the sore throat because of acid reflux. Try sleeping in a more propped position; also, a cup of warm milk with a spoonful of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon can help. This helped me even after the calcium antacid tablets stopped helping in my last pregnancy.

My heartburns have always been throatburns, and God knows I've had lots of them. Here's a few things that worked for me:

 

- Drink red raspberry leaf tea with honey

 

- Eat an apple (granny smith works best for this)

 

- Drink the following cocktail:

a good squeeze of lime or lemon, half a teaspoon baking soda, ice cubes and sparkling water.

It's not delicious but not awful either. And it soothes the throat and burns in a matter of minutes.

 

Hope this will help !
