Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

If you have heartburn or stomach acid that backs up into your esophagus and throat (reflux) twice a week or more often, you may have a medical condition called gastroesophageal reflux disease or, more commonly, GERD.

Symptoms of GERD

  • Asthma or asthma-like symptoms
  • Bloating
  • Burning in your mouth or throat
  • Dental erosion, gum disease or gum inflammation that is resistant to therapy
  • Excessive throat clearing
  • Frequent swallowing
  • Heartburn
  • Hoarseness or sore throat
  • Intolerance of certain foods
  • Pain or discomfort in your chest
  • Persistent cough

You don’t have to live with the discomfort of GERD. Specialists at University Health in San Antonio treat GERD effectively.
