Suffering From Acid Reflux?

Suffering From Acid Reflux?

Your gastroenterologists in Rochester, NY, can help you get relief from acid reflux

Trying new foods is fun, but if you suffer from acid reflux, certain foods can make you uncomfortable. If you have difficulty after eating acidic or spicy foods, you might be suffering from acid reflux. Your gastroenterologist can help you get relief.

Drs. Prasad Penmetsa, Surinder Devgun, and Ari Chodos at Rochester Gastroenterology Associates provide a wide range of gastroenterology services, including treatment for acid reflux. They have four convenient locations in Rochester, NY, and proudly serve residents of Rochester, Victor, Pittsford, Webster, Fairpoint, and Brighton, NY.

Acid reflux, commonly known as heartburn, has nothing to do with your heart. The heavy feeling in your chest is caused by improper functioning of the sphincter muscle in your esophagus. This muscle keeps stomach acid from backing up into your throat. When you have acid reflux, the sphincter muscle doesn’t close completely, allowing stomach acid to back up into your esophagus, causing a burning sensation.

Chronic acid reflux can develop into a condition known as GERD, or gastroesophageal reflux disease. You may have GERD if you experience:

  • Frequent sore throats
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Wheezing and dry coughing
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Abdominal or chest pain
  • Sensitive teeth from eroding tooth enamel

There are a few simple home remedies you can try to prevent or relieve acid reflux. You can:

  • Take over-the-counter antacids
  • Avoid lying flat after eating
  • Avoid spicy, acidic foods
  • Eat small meals
  • Avoid eating large amounts of food
  • Avoid smoking
  • Maintain a healthy weight

If you suffer from moderate to severe symptoms of acid reflux or GERD, you should seek out the expertise of your gastroenterologist. Your gastroenterologist may recommend:

  • Medications to control acid production
  • Lifestyle modifications
  • Dietary modifications

To learn more about the symptoms and treatment of acid reflux, talk with the experts. Call Drs. Prasad Penmetsa, Surinder Devgun, and Ari Chodos at Rochester Gastroenterology Associates, serving residents of Rochester, Victor, Pittsford, Webster, Fairpoint, and Brighton, NY.
