Causes of Heartburn
Stomach acid is necessary for normal digestion, but when it moves from the stomach up the esophagus, that’s when you feel the burn we call heartburn. Lots of things can cause it. The good news is, there are lots of good treatments, too.
What Is Breakthrough Heartburn?
This is of special interest for heartburn sufferers who are taking an acid-reducing medication as part of their heartburn prevention treatment. The term “breakthrough heartburn” refers to heartburn symptoms that can occur even while taking a preventative heartburn treatment.
While many digestive health problems are common and easily treated with medicine, some stomach symptoms can warn of more serious problems.
When there’s too much gas in your stomach, you can definitely feel it. Excess gas can result in uncomfortable and sometimes painful bloating and pressure.
