      We have all experienced it at one time or another. That
      burning, bloated feeling that accompanies a big meal. It is
      usually relieved by loosening your belt, or the top button of
      your pants. These symptoms are caused by indigestion. Certain
      foods can irritate the lining of your digestive track, and
      cause indigestion. It is not a frequent occurrence, and will
      resolve after a few hours, with no intervention.

      Sometimes that burning sensation creeps up behind your
      breastbone, accompanied by bloating, gas, nausea and a sour
      taste in the back of your throat. These are all symptoms of

      Any of these symptoms of acid reflux can occur individually, or
      all together. It is caused by the hydrochloric acid that your
      stomach uses to digest your food, backs up into your esophagus.
      When it happens occasionally, it is called heartburn. If it
      turns into a frequent occurrence, it is called a symptom of
      acid reflux.

      When you swallow, your food passes through your esophagus, into
      your stomach. There is a muscle at the bottom of your esophagus
      that lets the food pass through, and then closes to prevent
      anything from escaping back up. This muscle can become weak for
      a variety of reasons, such as pregnancy, being overweight,
      stress, or as a natural event of ageing.

      It also frequently happens in newborns. The muscle is not
      strong enough to seal the stomach. It is often called colic in
      babies, and they frequently outgrow the problem.

      One study found that 57% of acid reflux sufferers also had a
      hiatal hernia that allowed the stomach acid to splash back into
      the esophagus, causing irritation and tissue damage.

      If stomach acid makes it's way back into your lungs, it will
      cause you to be short of breath, and to suffer from asthma like
      symptoms. Repeated irritation of the lining of the esophagus
      will cause scarring and cell changes that can lead to cancer.

      If you suffer from any symptom of acid reflux, or take antacids
      more than three times a week, it is time to contact your health
      care practitioner. Several good solutions to acid reflux can
      provide relief and prevent complications.
