Acid reflux

From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

Acid reflux is when stomach acid travels back up from your stomach to your esophagus, often causing heartburn.[1] Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a severe form of acid reflux.[2]

Signs and symptoms[edit | edit source]

  • heartburn
  • an unpleasant sour taste in your mouth (caused by stomach acid)

Some people also have:

  • a cough or hiccups that keep coming back
  • a hoarse voice
  • bad breath
  • bloating and nausea

Symptoms are often worse after eating, when lying down, and when bending over.[3]
