Signs, symptoms, and causes of acid reflux

The most common symptoms of GERD, according to WebMD, are heartburn and regurgitation. Heartburn is that burning, uncomfortable feeling that moves from your stomach to your abdomen or chest, and even up to your throat. Regurgitation is a bitter or sour-tasting acid that moves up into your throat or mouth. Neither are pleasant, but both are possibly indicative of GERD if they’re experienced often.
If you have acid reflux disease, you might also experience:
– Bloating
– Bloody or black stools
– Bloody vomiting
– Burping
– Dysphagia — a narrowing of your esophagus, which feels like food is stuck in your throat
– Hiccups that you can’t get rid of
– Nausea
– Unexplainable weight loss
– Wheezing, dry cough, hoarseness or constant sore throat
