We have all heard of heartburn and at one time or
another experienced heartburn for ourselves.
Heartburn
is that burning that starts just behind our breast bone a
few hours after we have eaten, and occurs when the
digested food juices that are mixed with the stomach
acids ends up, back in the esophagus. Heartburn is
sometimes an indicator of
GERD, therefore can be a
precursor to
GERD symptoms.

The term is GERD is actually gastroesophageal reflux
disease. In GERD the stomach acid is refluxed into the
esophagus a repeated number of times. This repeated
acid reflux causes damage to the esophagus. Thus when
GERD begins it is considered to be a life long disease.  

There are symptoms that indicate whether you are
suffering from GERD or another digestive disorder. Some
GERD symptoms are as follows. One is persistent
heartburn and acid regurgitation.

Heartburn itself has different symptoms ranging from
having a burning sensation in the chest just behind your
breastbone which can occur after you eat and it can last
a few minutes or several hours. You might have a sour or
bitter taste in the mouth. Loss of voice for no obvious
reason and sometimes the symptoms of
heartburn are
mistaken for signs of a heart attack. The signs of
heartburn become worse after eating.

Certain foods induce the pains of
heartburn. These
include tomatoes, citruses and chocolates. Even drinking
teas, coffee and alcoholic beverages can make your
h
eartburn symptoms felt.

Some other symptoms of
heartburn are a burning in the
throat which causes swallowing to be difficult. You may
experience the taste of bile in your mouth. Chronic
coughing is another
heartburn symptom.

While these are the main symptoms of heartburn not all
GERD symptoms will be the same. Other GERD symptoms
include a pain in your chest, and sometimes a feeling of
hoarseness in the morning. Other symptoms are a
chocking sensation in the throat. You could get bad
breath or even become a victim of a persistent dry cough.

There could also be times when you will have trouble
swallowing your saliva, and you get the uncomfortable
feeling that you have some food still stuck in your throat
even though you had a meal several hours ago.

You might experience one of these symptoms or a
number of them. A simple doctor’s visit will answer your
questions about
GERD, and GERD symptoms. What
treatments that you can do to prevent
GERD and if they
are suitable for you can be answered by your doctor.
