It does not always happen but it could happen, especially in very overweight people. The symptoms would be a recurrence of your GERD symptoms - heartburn, bloated feeling etc. Prevention is basically keeping to a normal weight, not picking up very heavy objects (straining) and eating smaller meals more often than large meals 3 times a day.
