Acid Reflux could lead to GERD
In the metropolitan lifestyle, you are often addicted to fast foods or junk foods. Sometime you may consume a lot of beverages along with pizzas or burgers. These could only lead you to hyperacidity and if it sustains for long it could further develop Acid Reflux.
When hyperacidity occurs for a substantial period of time, the acidic stomach content starts impacting the gastroesophageal sphincter and as result, it gets loose leaving a small gap between the stomach and the esophagus. In a further development of hyperacidity, the acidic stomach content starts flowing upwards through that gap into the esophagus, the food pipe that connects the stomach with our mouth.
You can immediately start feeling a burning sensation in your chest area. In worst cases, the stomach content may reach up to your throat area resulting regurgitation of sour or bitter stomach content in your mouth along with burping. It will accompany a severe sense of burning called heartburn. This development of hyperacidity and Acid Reflux is called as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease or GERD.
