Acid Reflux (Heartburn) – Symptoms, Causes and Home Remedies

Posted by Health & Beauty Expert on

Acid Reflux (Heartburn) could be a mild or severe pain in the chest. It is also possible that you could feel this type of chest pain after eating meal. Though this pain is largely termed heartburn but according to specialists, heart has nothing to do with this sort of pain instead this pain occurs in gastrointestinal system, precisely in the esophagus.

Acid Reflux (Heartburn) Symptoms: 

"When the lower part of the esophagus is exposed to acid from the stomach, the cells begin to adapt," says Michael D. Brown, MD, a gastroenterologist specializing in digestive disorders at Rush University Medical Center.

  • Burning sensation in the chest
  • Sore throat
  • Sour taste in mouth

Acid Reflux (Heartburn) Causes:

"The most important thing is to be aware of what causes you personally to have heartburn," says Brown. "Everyone is different, so be aware of what triggers an attack for you and what food and remedies work best for you. But always work closely with your doctor and let him or her know when you are experiencing prolonged bouts of heartburn." The digestive glands gather acids, assisting breaking down food through ingestion. This ensues due to:

  • Excessive smoking
  • Consumption of alcohol
  • Erratic eating times
  • Consumption of spicy and fried foods

"If you believe you have acid reflux disease and are having difficulties using medications to control it, TIF and other laparoscopic antireflux procedures may be helpful," Brown says. "Having a discussion of these procedures with your gastroenterologist is a great starting point."
