Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I have acid reflux or the more serious GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease)?
- Acid reflux is a much more mild condition usually entailing frequent heartburn or the bitter burning sensation in the chest and back of throat as acid rises from the stomach. GERD is more serious, sometimes even existing without the symptom of heartburn. Instead, patients may experience a dry cough, asthma like symptoms or trouble swallowing. If you are experiencing these symptoms or are having reflux episodes 2 to 3 times a day to 2 to 3 times a week, you could have GERD and should consult your doctor.
I know to avoid fatty, spicy and acidic foods. Are any particular foods I should watch out for?
- In addition to staying clear of fatty, spicy and acidic foods, try avoiding tomato based foods such as spaghetti sauce, salsa, chili and pizza. Citrus fruits such as limes and lemons, chocolate, caffeinated beverages, alcohol, fried foods, garlic, onion and mint flavoring can all contribute to reflux reactions.
