What is GERD?

If you have heartburn more than once a week, then you might have chronic acid reflux. Also known as GERD, chronic acid reflux can cause real pain and make eating difficult. Here are the most common symptoms:

  • Heartburn
  • Recurgitation
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Asthma
  • Can't eat certain foods
  • Can't drink certain liquids
  • Pain or discomfort in the chest

What Can I Do?

It all depends how bad your symptoms are. Medications and lifestyle changes may help. If not minimally invasive surgery might be your best option.
