Gerd stands for gastroesophageal reflux disease.
Its heartburn (or reflux) that happens two or more times per week. Its more serious than regular heartburn.
The problem lies at the place where your esophagus (the tube that connects your mouth to your stomach) connects to your stomach. You have a muscular valve there. Its called the lower esophageal sphincter.
Its job is to keep stomach acid in your stomach.
But if that valve doesnt work well, the acid can go back up into asthma your esophagus.
If stomach acid goes into your esophagus, you may have heartburn and belching.
If it goes higher into your throat, you may have hoarseness and sore throat. And if it gets into your mouth, youll notice a bitter taste in your mouth, and you may cough.
If it happens a lot, it may wear down your tooth enamel or worsen the symptoms of asthma.
