Spotting The Warning Signs Of Acid Reflux

Jun 6, 2008
You have just stuffed yourself at this wonderful meal. Just could not resist one more helping of the wonderful beef dish with the rich cream sauce.

That feeling of well being also led you to getting comfortable on the sofa, just in time for your favorite program on TV. Feet up, a roaring fireplace and a chocolate followed by a great wine is what you love. A bowl of peanuts to add some crunch.

What you experience thereafter are the signs of Acid Reflux.

Sometimes, these dreamy reveries can be interrupted with a nasty feeling in the chest, that feels as if there is some sour acidic fluid rising up behind your breastbone. Sometimes things really get unpleasant with all the great stuff you ate coming back as sour fluid, right back into your throat. You wish you could vomit it, but it just stays there.

Thanks to the Vagus nerve that springs into action during an abdominal upset, some people even get dizzy spells as part of the Acid Reflux reaction.

You may also notice a feeling of food getting stuck in your throat when swallowing. This leads to the sensation of food feeling difficult to travel down the food pipe.

Acid reflux suffers show symptoms of a sore throat, difficulty breathing, even an urge constantly to clear your throat. Acid Reflux is also known as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).

Turns out that this Acid Reflux disease has nothing to do with genetic disposition, age, nationality, race and other classifying factors, but has everything to do with your attitude towards the quality of your eating, nutrition, and health. A child of two can get this disease, so can a teenager, and so can a senior in the family. While a very young child getting an Acid Reflux problem may be related to physiological development concerns, for everyone else , it is almost a disease brought on by overindulgence , and abuse of your digestive system.
