“The first time I got GERD. Sorry for the pain,” wrote the former Ratu personnel.

GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease is a condition in which the acid in the stomach constantly leaks back up and up into the esophagus.

This acid can escape from the stomach because the valve at the end of the esophagus, the lower esophageal sphincter, doesn’t close properly when food arrives in the stomach. The backwash acid then flows back through the esophagus into the throat and mouth. So it tastes sour in the mouth.

Quoted from the Cleveland Clinic, the activity of rising acid in the stomach can actually happen to almost anyone. So, experiencing it once in a while is completely normal.

However, if you experience GERD more than twice a week in a row and continue to take antacid medications but your symptoms don’t subside, it could mean that your GERD has gotten worse. It is best to seek medical help immediately.
