Gastroesophageal Reflux (GERD) Doctor Pompton Plains Morris County NJ
For many local Pompton Plains and Morris County, NJ people, Gastroesophageal Reflux is an issue and so you may be looking for a Gastroesophageal Reflux (GERD) Doctor. It is a prevalent condition related to high blood sugar or glucose and can affect folks at any stage in life. The condition or disease results from stomach acid flowing back into the esophagus or the tube that connects the mouth and stomach. That backward flow, also known as acid reflux, can severely irritate the lining of the esophagus. Acid Reflux is relatively standard, but when a person repeatedly experiences it, it may cause Gastroesophageal Reflux (GERD.)
The signs of Gastroesophageal Reflux include heartburn (burning feeling in the chest after eating), regurgitation (sour liquid taste), upper stomach-to-chest discomfort, dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), the sensation of having a lump in one’s throat, an ongoing cough, laryngitis (swollen vocal cords) and/or asthma. See an experienced Gastroesophageal Reflux (GERD) doctor if any of the above results in shortness of breath, chest pain, or jaw or arm pain. In some cases, this can be a sign of a heart attack.
