Acid reflux – or GERD is caused by stomach acid backing up into your esophagus.
It is not that you necessarily have too much acid, it is caused by stomach acid that is in the wrong place. The most common symptoms are heartburn, regurgitation and trouble swallowing. Less common symptoms include coughing, chest pain, belching and a sour taste in the mouth.
