Acid Reflux

Acid Reflux; Causes and Symptoms

Do you have symptoms of acid reflux that make the moments after each meal something to be wary about? If so, you're not alone, as many Americans today are afflicted with acid reflux disease and its many painful symptoms.

Acid reflux is characterized typically by heartburn, which is the irritating feeling in your esophagus created by acid jumping back up into it from your stomach. Acid reflux also includes regurgitation, the physical manifestation of that stomach acid flowing up into your esophagus. These symptoms are not something that should be ignored-- particularly because it's often a sign of an underlying condition known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This can lead to various health complications including:

  • heartburn
  • esophagitis
  • ulcers
  • difficulty swallowing
  • esophageal spasms
  • greater risk of esophageal cancer

But at Rochester Gastroenterology Associates, your gastrointestinal health can find the full effects of consistent, long-term care under the trusted techniques of the helpful physicians on site. They understand the causes and cures of acid reflux and GERD as a whole.

Some of the other leading symptoms of acid reflux include:

  • Bloating
  • Burping
  • Dysphagia
  • Constant hiccups
  • Bloody or extremely dark stools
  • Bloody vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Noticeable weight loss
  • Dry cough
  • Wheezing
  • Perpetually sore throat

While the severity of patients' GERD symptoms has to do with their lower esophageal sphincter dysfunctions, treating this surprisingly common condition can be accomplished in most cases through diet modifications and healthy eating.

If you're one of the more than seven million Americans today suffering from GERD symptoms or are worried about your gastroesophageal health due to frequent acid reflux, then give one of the professional gastroenterologists at Rochester Gastroenterology Associates a call today at our Penfield office at (585) 267-4040 or Greece office (585) 227-1080 at.
