Heartburn may be the first sign of a more serious problem, gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), or even cancer. If you have heartburn, swallowing problems, upper abdominal discomfort, indigestion or an acid taste more than twice a week, you may have reflux disease. The term “reflux” refers to the upward flow of stomach acid into the esophagus causing one or more of these symptoms. Reflux disease cannot be effectively treated by antacids or over-the-counter medications.
