About acid reflux
Acid reflux is a common condition that occurs when stomach acid rushes back into the tube that connects your mouth and stomach (the esophagus). Recurring acid reflux is known as Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), in which stomach acid (acid reflux) might irritate your esophageal lining.
Acid reflux affects a large number of people at some point in their lives. GERD is defined as mild acid reflux occurring at least twice a week or moderate to severe acid reflux occurring at least once a week. Most people can control their GERD symptoms with a combination of lifestyle modifications and over-the-counter medicines. Some patients with GERD, however, may require more intensive medications or surgery to alleviate their symptoms.
