Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease is the increase of food and stomach acid into the upper gastrointestinal tract due to a weakness in the gastroesophageal sphincter (valve between the stomach and esophagus). Normally this sphincter will hold food that has entered the stomach to remain in the stomach. and not go up again.
Food and stomach acid that rises again to the top can cause symptoms that appear in GERD including burning and pain in the chest, bitter or sour mouth, nausea, a lump in the throat, difficulty swallowing food, food comes out when belching, sometimes it can Symptoms also appear such as shortness of breath, weakness, body feels cold, etc. These symptoms mainly occur after eating too much or too full, or when lying down after eating. Even though the symptoms that you mentioned can occur due to GERD, it still needs to be excluded the possibility of other more dangerous causes such as heart attacks, heart rhythm disorders, disorders of the heart muscle, or other disorders of the lungs. If these symptoms recur frequently, you should check with your doctor so that you can evaluate and be given further management.
The following are some of the things you can do to overcome GERD:
