Is HEARTBURN Breaking Your Heart?

June 28, 2017

 

Heartburn is a very common symptom created by acid reflux, a condition where some of the stomach contents (including stomach acid) are forced back up into the esophagus, creating a burning pain in the lower chest. Persistent acid reflux that happens more than twice a week results in the diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Heartburn is felt when stomach acid flows back up into the esophagus (food pipe or gullet), down which food moves from the mouth to the stomach.

At least 15 million Americans experience heartburn - the symptom of acid reflux - every day, according to estimates from the American College of Gastroenterology  Nearly everyone has heartburn now and then. But heartburn is also the most common symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), so talk to your doctor if:

  • Your heartburn happens 2 or more times a week

  • Your heartburn gets worse

  • Your heartburn happens at night and wakes you from sleep

  • You’ve had heartburn now and then, but for several years

  • You have difficulty or pain when swallowing

  • Your discomfort or pain interferes with your daily activities

.Don’t let heartburn break your heart. Talk to your doctor.
