Question: How do u get acid in the stomach .?
There's always acid in your stomach. It helps you digest your food, and it helps kill anything living that you swallow with your food. Your stomach can make extra acid when you eat certain foods, and sometimes that extra acid can irritate the lining of your stomach. If it's just a little acid, you can take sodium bicarbonate, Tums, or similar medication. These contain alkali, which cancels out acid. If you have a more serious problem, there are other medicines that calm down your acid response, and you can avoid foods that add to the problem.Health Question & Answer
