Default Splenda heart burn?!

Has anyone else experienced a burning in their throat after eating something with Splenda in it? I'm a Coke Zero addict, but since doing SBD and up-ing the Splenda intake, it seems everytime I drink my pop (or eat anything w/splenda) my throat burns !!

...because there's always more mediums on the clearence rack. :-)

Mini-goal: To be the weight I was when I met my hubby, by summer!

First up, you can develop heartburn reactions to certain foods. I used to love red peppers, now I can only eat them sparingly and with a Tums or two. Soda and carbonated beverages are catalysts for heartburn. If you ate something that was causing mild heartburn, the soda would make it worse, splenda or no splenda.

If I were you, I'd keep a food diary for a week and note when your heartburn occurs. It's possible it could be your body's reaction to the substance. Also possible that you have some acid-reflux. Take that food diary to your doc and have them put the kabosh to it for good!
