    Whenever I have an intense BJJ session for my competition class (2+ hours), I get really bad stomach acid. It feels like I might need to puke, but HOURS after, I get bad heartburn. It sometimes last a day or two.

    Anyone else get this problem? Pepto and Tums do NOTHING for it. Is there anything I can do to prevent it? I usually eat yogurt or pudding about an hour before I go, that way I don't puke.

    Ask your doctor for prevacid when i used to have stomach problems i took one of those a day and it worked wonders. Pepto and tums really are not for that you can try pepcid AC cause thats more of an anti-acid and thats also over the counter as well

    The thing is, I don't have problems with it, other than after intense grappling sessions.

    That is definetly bizarre I would definetly talk to your doctor about this then as that might be indicative of a larger problem maybe a small ulcer or something that would not bother you unless your pushing yourself or moving your stomach around in strange ways.

    It has happened 3x now within the past 2 months. If I am just doing a normal BJJ class, I don't have a problem. When it is 2 hours of non-stop moving, that is when I have problems.

    It would make sense if you have just a small problem nonstop rolling will exagerate it i found this:
    Why do I get heartburn when I exercise?
    Anything that increases the pressure inside the abdomen, such as strenuous exercise, heavy lifting or straining, will indirectly increase the pressure in the stomach. This increase in pressure is often enough to push stomach fluid past a weakened sphincter and up into the esophagus, resulting in heartburn.

    You can also try Prilosec...it's the over the counter version of prevacid and all those proton inhibitors. But like someone else said...you should have this looked at.

    I just found this:

    Basically, there isn't much research and not much I can do about it.

    I use to have this to sometimes, the acid not the heartburn..
    As long as I dont puke on my sparingpartner im cool with it.. It also seems like I feel it less the more I grapple..
