Acid Reflux Symptoms

The following are some of the symptoms of acid reflux. If you or a family member wants to eliminate the agony and discomfort caused by acid reflux or heartburn and live a pain FREE life forever, then The Acid Reflux Diet can provide you the knowledge to accomplish this.

A) Burping (belching), a noisy stomach, or passing of gas - Burping (belching), a noisy stomach, or passing of gas from the lower bowel can be embarrassing events, but they are rarely caused by a medical problem. More often, gas is the result of the foods that you eat. (If you're reading this, then I am 100% sure you understand this is often painful and is always embarrassing when done in public.)

B) Swallowing difficulty - Difficulty when swallowing is the sensation that food is stuck in the throat or upper chest. This may be felt high in the neck or lower down, behind the breastbone (sternum). Swallowing is a complex act that involves the mouth, throat area, and esophagus (tube that transports food to the stomach). Many nerves and muscles affect the correct function of these parts. Part of the act of swallowing is under conscious (voluntary) control. However, much of swallowing is involuntary. Problems at any point, from chewing food and moving it into the back of the mouth, to moving the food into the stomach can result in difficulty swallowing. Frequently, symptoms of chest pain, food stuck in the throat, heaviness or pressure in the neck or upper chest, are the result of swallowing difficulties. (I never had much of a problem with swallowing. My problem was swallowing too much and swallowing the wrong types of foods.)

C) Swallowing pain or burning - A strong feeling of burning, squeezing pain while swallowing (felt high in the neck or lower down, behind the breastbone) may be a symptom of a serious disorder. Swallowing is a complex act that involves the mouth, throat area, and esophagus (the tube that transports food to the stomach). Problems at any point, from the mouth to the esophagus, can result in burning or intense pain with swallowing. This may be accompanied by chest pain, the feeling that food is stuck in the throat, or heaviness or pressure in the neck or upper chest. (Same as the above.)

 

D) Nausea, Vomiting and Regurgitation - Another common symptom of acid reflux is regurgitation or the sensation of acid backing up into your throat or mouth. Regurgitation can produce a sour or bitter taste, and you may experience a "wet burp" or even vomit some contents of your stomach. (This affected me so bad that I ended up stopping waiting for my stomach to regurgitate and did it myself to eliminate the pain faster. At one time, I could literally stick my left hand half way down my stomach to cause myself to vomit and ease the pain quickly.)

E) Recurring Abdominal Pain – Sharp pain in the upper abdominal. (This is another symptom that I had real problems with. It could feel like somebody stuck a knife in my stomach right out of no where and cause me to lurch over at a 45 degree angle. It was really embarrassing when other people were around and they would ask, "If everything was alright?" Of course, I would lie and say "I was fine." But, come to think about it now, why would anybody even ask me if I was in pain in the first place? Would a normal person just be walking by all of sudden be forced to bend over in excruciating pain?)

F) Heartburn - Heartburn is the primary symptom of GERD. It is a burning sensation that radiates up from the stomach to the chest and throat. Heartburn is most likely to occur in connection with the following activities: After a heavy meal, bending over, lifting or lying down, particularly on the back. (Why even bother going here, we all have experienced this too much to mention. Don't worry; it will soon be in the past.)

G) Dyspepsia - Many people with acid reflux disease also have a syndrome called dyspepsia. Dyspepsia is a general term for stomach discomfort. Symptoms of dyspepsia include; burping, nausea after eating, stomach fullness or bloating and upper abdominal pain and discomfort. (Same as the above.)
