What Is GERD?

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a digestive dysfunction affecting the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), a bundle of muscles between the stomach and the esophagus. There are many people who suffer from symptoms of heartburn or acid indigestion that are caused by GERD. Your esophagus transfers food from your mouth to your stomach. It has two sphincters, one at the top in your throat and one at the bottom where it connects to your stomach. Normally, the lower esophageal sphincter (or LES) maintains a strong grip, allowing the one-way flow of food into your stomach. If the LES weakens or doesn’t close properly, however, the digestive enzymes and acid in your stomach can escape back up into your esophagus.

Many people experience acid reflux symptoms after eating certain foods. In these instances, over-the-counter medications may work well to temporarily calm the symptoms of GERD such as a burning throat. Your gastroenterologist or GERD doctor can help diagnose the condition and place you on the correct medication or prescribe lifestyle modification as needed.

What Are the Symptoms of Acid Reflux?

Common symptoms of acid reflux include heartburn and/or acid regurgitation. Heartburn starts as a burning sensation in your chest. It occasionally can rise into your throat, leaving a sour taste in your mouth and a feeling of a burning throat. When you experience this symptom, it’s called acid regurgitation.
