Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease occurs when stomach acid leaks up into the oesophagus. This is known as reflux.
The most common symptoms of GORD include:
- heartburn – a burning chest pain or discomfort after eating
- regurgitation – when stomach acids comes back up into the mouth causing an unpleasant sour taste
- dysphagia – difficulty swallowing.
In many cases symptoms can improve by making lifestyle changes. We can assist with helping you to lose weight, eat smaller meals and watching the timing of meals as well as to identify triggers that may exacerbate your GORD.
