What Are the Symptoms of GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease)?
Gastroesophageal reflux disease, commonly known as acid reflux disease, occurs when an excess of stomach juice in the body rises up through the esophagus.
Acid reflux can cause a number of issues that severely affect your quality of life.
Those who suffer from acid reflux disease experience heartburn, chest pains, and indigestion. Acid reflux can also permanently damage the esophagus, leading to issues such as a chronic cough, asthma, hoarseness, and other difficulties with your lungs and throat.
Many people suffer from the symptoms of acid reflux but do not require special treatment or medication. When these symptoms and issues start to occur on a regular basis, however, then it’s time to seek out professional medical help.
