Frequent Heartburn Symptoms


Fairly Frequent Systems and Moderate Pain

Do you wonder if you’ll be taking antacids and pills for the rest of your life? If you find you are reaching for antacids several times a week, you may be experiencing fairly frequent symptoms and moderate pain. Are you aware that medications may relieve heartburn, but could also be masking other problems?

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is caused by a malfunctioning valve in the esophagus that does not close properly. GERD can lead to serious conditions such as Barrett’s esophagus or esophageal cancer.

If the medications you take to relieve your heartburn are losing their effectiveness, or if you have been experiencing symptoms for several years, it is definitely time to get serious about your condition. The Fairfield Medical Heartburn Center offers a thorough evaluation to pinpoint the exact cause of your symptoms. Finding the true cause of your symptoms is the first step towards relief of your discomfort or pain.
