Category: Acid Reflux
Acid Reflux or GERD occurs when the tube that you uses to intake the food from the throat to stomach cannot handle the acid. The food eaten by you is digested by the stomach with the help of an acid produced and stored by it. The stomach walls are built strong enough to store that acid without causing damage. For unknown reasons when acid flows back into the oesophagus from the stomach it creates heartburn, which is widely considered the first symptom of acid reflux. It leaves a constant chest burning sensation. Everyone may find these acid reflux symptoms occurring to them once in a while, but when it happens regularly over a period of 2 to 3 times in a week with no visible relief even after medication, then you have acid reflux.
