What is Acid Reflux Disease?Written by Jeff Lakie
Acid reflux disease, also known as Gastro-esophageal Reflux Disease, or GERD, is a common ailment, affecting between 5%-7% of population. In order to understand what GERD is it is important to be familiar with how esophagus works. A long muscular tube, esophagus carries food and liquid from mouth to stomach. The average adult esophagus is around ten to thirteen inches long and approximately an half an inch in diameter. GERD is caused by backflow of acid from stomach into esophagus, usually because lower esophageal sphincter does not close properly. When this happens over a long period of time, lining of this tract becomes eroded, causing discomfort and pain.
Symptoms of disease are fairly straightforward and are very similar to symptoms of heartburn. GERD often include a frequent burning sensation, right behind breastbone, which sometimes worsens when lying down for extended periods of time. While most cases of heartburn turn out to be non-life threatening, it is important that you visit your doctor at onset of symptoms. Unfortunately, symptoms of both indigestion and GERD can also imitate those of heart disease, so it is very important that you seek medical attention to make sure that you get correct diagnosis.
