Recognize the Symptoms of GERD

Are you experiencing a pain in your chest after indulging in fried food? Do you get the sour taste of acid reflux when you lie down after a big meal? If this happens to you more than twice a week, you could have GERD, the chronic version of acid reflux.

Some symptoms may be less obvious than the traditional heartburn and indigestion. For example, you may constantly have a hoarse voice, or feel the need to clear your throat. These can be indications of GERD, too. If you suspect you may have GERD, evaluate your symptoms and make an appointment with your doctor to determine the best course of treatment.
