Acid Reflux
A very common condition closely associated with heartburn. Acid reflux is the unpleasant feeling of stomach acid traveling upwards towards the throat.

The stomach contains hydrochloric acid, which is an acid that helps to break down food and protect against bacteria. A ring of muscles called the gastroesophageal sphincter, acts as a valve that lets food into the stomach but not back up into the esophagus. When this valve fails, stomach content regurgitates back into the esophagus. This is known as acid reflux.

Acid reflux is known to affect people of all ages, sometimes for unknown reasons. It may happen due to a lifestyle factor, but also due to causes that cannot always be prevented.

Symptoms include:
  • Bloating
  • Burning sensation in the chest
  • Coughing
