Normally, a muscular valve at the end of esophagus keeps the acid in the stomach. When heartburn occurs the valve relaxes too often causing acid to reflux. Common symptoms are:Bitter or sour tasteUncomfortable burning feeling or pressure behind the chest that moves toward the neck and throatSymptoms often occur after meals Who gets heartburn?According to the American College of Gastroenterology, more than 60 million Americans experience heartburn monthly with some 15 million Americans having heartburn daily.4How can you prevent heartburn?3,4You can control your heartburn symptoms through these lifestyle and diet changes:Avoid specific foods and beverages that are associated with triggering heartburn such as chocolate, coffee, peppermint, greasy or spicy foods, tomato products, and alcoholic beveragesQuit smoking and avoid second hand smokeLose weight if you are too heavy and avoid wearing tight fitting clothing around your stomachAvoid eating 2-3 hours before sleepingStay upright for 3 hours after a meal and avoid reclining or slouching when sittingSleep on a slight angle by elevating the head of your bed 6 to 8 inchesADDITIONAL HEARTBURN INFORMATIONAntacids should be used for immediate relief and occasional heartburn, whereas Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) such as Omeprazole are only for frequent heartburn and should NOT be used for immediate relief4Frequent heartburn may be a sign of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which you should consult a doctor4Untreated heartburn can lead to damage of the esophagus causing bleeding, ulcers, and scarring3Chronic untreated heartburn increases the risk of esophageal cancer3 REFERENCESShin JM, Sachs G.
