Acid reflux is the backward flow of stomach acid into the esophagus — the tube that connects the throat and stomach. Acid reflux is more specifically known as gastro esophageal reflux. During acid reflux, you may taste regurgitated food or sour liquid at the back of your mouth or feel a burning sensation in your chest – heartburn.
The most common symptom of acid reflux is frequent heartburn. Other signs and symptoms may include regurgitation of food or sour liquid, difficulty swallowing, coughing, wheezing, and chest pain — especially while lying down at night. If you have acid reflux, lifestyle changes can help, like losing excess weight, eat smaller meals, and avoid foods that seem to trigger heartburn — such as fried or fatty foods, chocolate, and peppermint. Avoiding alcohol and nicotine may help, too.
