Hi Simona, I tested positive for giardia over a month ago, heartburn is definitely one of the symptoms. I did a round of tinidazole 2g once, it went away for 11 days and came back. Then did 2 rounds of tinidazole 5 days apart, the symptoms inc heartburn went away but then came back again 11 days later again. Each time it comes back it is milder but the heartburn is still the most persistent symptom. I have only ever had it once in my life before, which was when pregnant with one of my boys. So I am not normally prone to it.
