Acid Reflux

Acid reflux is a very common condition that is characterised by a burning pain usually felt around the middle of the lower chest area. It’s caused by acid escaping up into the oesophagus from your stomach. Doctors would consider you to have acid reflux if you experience symptoms of heartburn more than twice in a week.

Acid Reflux

UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain Acid Reflux. Below is what he has to say.

Acid reflux, also known as indigestion, heartburn or gastroesophageal reflux disease is a very common condition which is characterised by a burning or gnawing pain, usually felt around the middle of the lower chest area. It's caused by acid escaping up into the esophagus from your stomach. Doctors would consider you to have acid reflux if you feel the symptoms of heartburn more than twice in a week.

While the lining of your stomach is adapted to protect it from the strong stomach acid, your esophagus is not. If the muscle which prevents acid leaking up from the stomach into your esophagus fails, the acid can irritate it causing pain, which is often felt just after having a meal.

There are a number of over the counter prescription medications which can help with the discomfort of acid reflux by reducing the amount of acid made in the stomach, such as Esomeprazole, Lansoprazole and Omeprazole, and you can find them here at UK Meds.
