Heartburn is the most prominent symptom of GORD. Other symptoms include difficulty in swallowing, regurgitation of acids and stomach contents into the mouth and general chest pain. Asthma and throat infections can occur in some people.
Am I eating correctly to manage or prevent symptoms of indigestion/heartburn?
Bad breath, bad sign
