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
- Burning in your mouth or throat
- Dental erosion, gum disease or gum inflammation that is resistant to therapy
- Excessive throat clearing
- Frequent swallowing
- 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.
