Suffering from gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) is not very appealing.
Whether you have heartburn, regurgitation, swallowing difficulties, or even symptoms in your throat such as cough and hoarseness, GERD can make your life miserable. It can affect eating habits, work productivity, sleep, and just your overall quality of life.
You are not alone. GERD affects millions of people, up to 40% of the population of the United States. Some try to modify their lifestyle; others take antacids or other over-the-counter medications—while others are prescribed powerful medications designed to be taken for life.
