Mar 18, 2013 Acid Reflux
Acid reflux is a symptom of GERD which is a digestive disorder. The most common symptoms are heartburn and indigestion but it also causes nausea, headaches and vomiting. Most people rarely have acid reflux and it is no cause for concern. Extreme symptoms include vomiting which damages the oesophagus and rots teeth. Long-term acid reflux may be symptoms of a more serious condition so it is best to get it checked out. Causes of acid reflux include; spicy foods, fatty foods, chocolate, being overweight, smoking, pregnancy, stress, anti-inflammatories, asthma inhalers and hiatus hernia. Lying down too soon after eating also causes indigestion. Most people solve their discomfort by taking over the counter antacids to neutralise the acid. Changes to your lifestyle such as losing weight and giving up smoking usually prevent symptoms from reoccurring. If GERD Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease is the cause of your acid reflux you will not be able to relieve your symptoms as easily. GERD is when the band of muscle between the stomach and the oesophagus becomes loose allowing stomach acid to flow back to the mouth. This causes bad breath and a bitter taste in the mouth. Proton pump inhibitors reduce acid production in the stomach and help to prevent acid reflux.
