Question: Acid Reflux?

 BrownEyez - Tue Oct 25, 2005 10:09 am

For the past 3 weeks or so everytime I eat or bend over it feels like food or liquid comes back up into my chest and throat. Is this possibly acid reflux and should I have it checked out? :?

User avatar Hi BrownEyez,
You may want to mention your symptoms when you have your next evaluation. Symptoms of acid reflux can be reduced by alterations in diet, not eating just before going to bed, and there are many over the counter products that may also help alleviate these symptoms. Again, if symptoms don't improve with the above suggestions or worsen, contact your physician for an evaluation.
