Acid Reflux Signs and Symptoms

  • Acid Reflux Signs and Symptoms

    Ouchhh!!

    We’ve all been there once or twice in our life or at least know some one who has … Heart Burn.
    Main question we always here is Heart Burn and Acid Reflux the same? If not how can I tell the difference between the two?
    For starters Acid Reflux occurs when stomach acid regurgitates up into the esophagus. Reflux is the cause of heartburn. However, you may feel no pain at all when reflux occurs.(catch 20/20)

    Heartburn is a sensation of tightness, pain or discomfort in the middle of the chest that can  but doesn’t always  follow an occurrence of acid reflux. Heartburn is exactly what it would feel like if acid ate away at the lining of your esophagus, because that’s what’s happening. (more of like a burning sensation after you ate too much pizza)

    The most accurate way to know if you have Acid Reflux or Heart Burn is by getting diagnosed by a doctor.

    Until then here are some signs and symptoms of Acid Reflux Disease that you may want to watch out for:

    • Asthma
    • Chest pain
    • Dental erosion
    • Dysphagia
    • Heartburn
    • Hoarseness
    • Regurgitation

    Here are some common causes of Acid Reflux: 

    • Large meals and eating habits
    • Bending forward
    • Hiatus hernia (hiatal hernia)
    • Peptic ulcers and insufficient digestive enzymes
    • Asthma
    • Smoking
    Below is a list of foods/drinks that commonly cause irritation and/or heartburn:
    • Alcohol
    • Carbonated drinks
    • Chili and chili powder
    • Citrus fruit,
    • Coffee
    • Garlic
    • Spicy food

     If you have any of the symptoms listed above you should consult with your doctor right away so that you could be on the right track again. Remember occasional heartburn is normal, living with pain is not.
