What is it?

Acid reflux is a fairly common health problem, characterized by a heartburn or a burning sensation behind the sternum that sometimes reaches the throat.

This particular health issue becomes so severe that it can be confused with a heart attack.

Many people believe that this problem is caused by excessive amounts of acid in the stomach, so medications that block acidity are often recommended.

However, research has found that in some, not a few, cases this is a misconception since the problem usually occurs because it has little acid in the stomach.

Symptoms

Acid reflux symptoms include the following:

  • Burping
  • Heartburn
  • Stomach discomfort
  • Stomach fullness or bloating
  • Burning pain in the chest after eating
  • Burning in the chest when lying down
  • Upper abdominal pain and discomfort
  • Acid backing up into your throat or mouth from the stomach
