Acid Reflux upsetting you?

Acid reflux occurs when stomach acid or, occasionally, stomach content, flows back into your food pipe (esophagus). The backwash (reflux) irritates the lining of your esophagus and causes GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease).

• Chest pain
• Difficulty swallowing (dysphagia)
• Dry cough
• Regurgitation of food or sour liquid (acid reflux)
• Sensation of a lump in your throat

• The backup of stomach acid or bile into the esophagus.
• Esophageal sphincter relaxes abnormally or weakens, causing stomach acid to flow back into your esophagus.
