Everything You Need to Know About Acid Reflux

What is acid reflux?
Acid reflux is a condition in which the acid liquid content from the stomach backs up into the esophagus. This causes a burning feeling in your chest and throat. This is what most people call heartburn. Keep in mind that occasional heartburn is common, but it does not mean one has acid reflux.
Why does it happen?
Acid reflux happens when the muscle in the lower esophagus, the esophageal (LES), does not function as it should. This muscle is responsible for opening an closing when food passes through. When the LES does not close completely, acid from the stomach can move into the esophagus.
Other factors that can contribute to acid reflux are alcohol use, obesity, pregnancy, and smoking.
Who can have it?
Anyone, at any age, can have acid reflux.
What are the symptoms?
The acid can inflame and harm the inner walls of the esophagus.
Common signs of acid reflux include:
- Chest pain (especially when laying down)
- Difficulty swallowing
- Chronic sore throat
- Regurgitation of food
- Bloody or black stools
- Bloody vomiting
- Weight loss
How can I control it?
- Avoid foods and drinks that make your symptoms worse
- Quit smoking
- Avoid lying on your back after eating
- Eat small, more frequent meals
- Elevate the head of your bed
