Acid Reflux Symptoms
Acid reflux is a condition when some of the strong acids from the stomach and other stomach contents flow up into the oesophagus via the LES, lower esophageal sphincter. The LES allows the food to enter the stomach once it is swallowed.
The LES then would close to prevent the contents from the stomach to back out. Weakened or damaged LES does not close completely, instead, it allows for harmful stomach content to come out into the esophagus thereby causing the acid reflux symptoms.The symptoms of acid reflux are often experienced when is lying down, after a heavy meal, and after a spicy or fatty meal.
Acid reflux can be experienced at any time of the day although majority tend to experience them at night.
