Life-Altering Symptoms and Pain
Do you sleep in a recliner because you cannot lie flat? Does regurgitation frequently wake you at night? When heartburn makes you miserable day and night you may be experiencing life-altering symptoms and pain. Severe and painful systems of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can occur during the day or night, decreasing your productivity, affecting your relationships, and generally making your life miserable.
Heartburn, swallowing difficulties, dental problems and chronic sore throat are just a few of the symptoms of GERD that may affect your quality of life. GERD-related heartburn typically gets progressively worse as you age. Furthermore, recurring symptoms can be a sign of serious problems, such as GERD-induced esophageal cancer.
