    The more specific the diagnosis, the better

    Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition in which the stomach contents leak backwards from the stomach into the esophagus. This can irritate the esophagus and cause heartburn and other symptoms.Common symptoms of GERD include:

    Feeling that food is stuck behind the breastbone
    Heartburn or a burning pain in the chest
    Nausea after eating
    Less common symptoms are:

    Bringing food back up (regurgitation)
    Cough or wheezing
    Difficulty swallowing
    Hiccups
    Hoarseness or change in voice
    Sore throat
    Symptoms may get worse when you bend over or lie down, or when you eat. Symptoms may also be worse at night."
