What is acid reflux?
Acid reflux (also known as heartburn) can be a real pain. Unfortunately it’s incredibly common with up to 25% of UK adults suffering regularly.
Symptoms are generally temporary but they’re still pretty unpleasant. They include a sour taste in your mouth and a burning sensation in the centre of your chest. Many people also report bad breath, a cough or hiccups that are hard to get rid of, a nauseous and/or bloated feeling, and a hoarse voice.
If acid reflux symptoms happen more than twice a week, you may have acid reflux disease, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
