Acid Reflux and Heartburn
When it's Time to See a Specialist
Acid reflux is that burning pain you feel moving from your stomach to your abdomen or chest, or even up into your throat. It often tastes sour or bitter and can accompany a handful of other uncomfortable symptoms including heartburn, difficulty swallowing, bloating, persistent burping/hiccups, dry cough, sore throat and more.
If you’re experiencing any of these painful acid reflux and heartburn symptoms
two or more times a week it’s time to see a specialist and get the relief you deserve.
Risks of Untreated Acid Reflux
When symptoms of acid reflux are not controlled with lifestyle modifications and over-the-counter medicines you may have a more serious form of acid reflux known as GERD which can lead to other health issues if left untreated.
Over time, stomach acid may damage your esophagus, cause your teeth to decay, increase your risk of esophagus cancer and more.
