Crazy heartburn after going gluten-free, anyone else?

After trying to deny that I've been gluten sensitive for about two years now, I finally bit the bullet and have been doing the gluten-free transition for two weeks now. So far, I've been well with finding safe foods and probably eating a little better since I have to carefully think out what snacks to take to work versus just grabbing something on the go.

But three days ago, I started getting this killer heartburn and acid reflux, GERD-like symptoms. Burning in the chest like there's a fireball lodged in there, acid in the throat, bad taste in the mouth, the works. Tums 750mg chewables aren't doing anything, even in high doses. I took 6 total today and it's barely taken the edge off of the acid. Other than that, I'm fine, I just don't get why I'm having this heartburn so severe so suddenly!

I did start a food diary, and can recall back to what I ate the last few days, and I can say that it probably was a little higher on the carb end, which I read can cause heartburn, too. I just don't know if this is a wheat withdrawal symptom, or because I botched my eating habits a bit by going carb crazy. Anyone else who went GF experience something like this?
