There are a number of symptoms associated with GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) which is also called acid reflux. These symptoms range from mild to very severe and serious problems that need to be dealt with many times by consulting your health care professional.
The below list may not consist of all the differing symptoms but does highlight the majority of them.
Coughing and wheezing Difficulty swallowing Gassy stomach (belching) Heartburn, which consists of a burning sensation under the breastplate that may be increased by lying down, bending or stooping over or even eating the wrong foods. Heartburn may be more frequent and more severe later at night. A scratchy hoarse voice An ill feeling coupled with nausea and vomiting Regurgitation of food A sore throat
Acid reflux, GERD, may have all of these symptoms or perhaps only a few of them or even just one. You must understand that this can be a very serious disease and is not something to play around with or to ignore. If it continues to plague you then you need to see your doctor and do something about it.
For quick relief you can watch what you eat and how often you eat. Five or six smaller meals will many times help you from suffering from acid reflux. For temporary comfort form the pain and discomfort you can take an antacid or teaspoon of baking soda in a class of warm water. I would be careful of over doing the use of these kinds of treatments since they may cause your stomach to not produce the acids it needs to digest your food properly.
