Acid Reflux and GERD Treatment
Posted on July 10 2017
Acid reflux is one of the most health-related internet search terms today, a very common symptom of burning pain felt internally around the lower chest area, caused by stomach acid flowing back up into the food pipe. Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD. Symptoms include burning pain in the chest that usually occurs after eating and worsens when lying down. Relief from lifestyle changes and over-the-counter medications can usually help temporary. Stronger medications may be needed. Speak with your doctor is symptoms worsen.
