What is Acid Reflux?
Your stomach contains a strong acid that helps in digesting the food – hydrochloric acid. The lining in your stomach protects it from the powerful acid, but the food pipe or esophagus is not protected with such lining. When your stomach becomes too acidic, some acidic fluids along with food remains are propelled to go up into the esophagus. This happens due to an internal reflex action in your stomach. The term “Acid reflux” is interchangeably used for synonyms or terms like – pyrosis, acid indigestion, or heartburn. Acid reflux condition would create an excruciating burning sensation in the esophagus and lower chest often after eating.
