properly, food and acids from the stomach leak back -- or reflux -- into the
esophagus which causes the symptoms you are complaining of ,technically a
symptom of GERD it can be aggravated by foods, certain

Try to follow these suggestions to
improve your
symptoms :

head of your bed so that your head and chest are higher than your feet,
you can use extra pillow .

hours before lying

meal times, or try eating four to five small meals instead of three large ones.
