Heartburn / Gastroesophageal Disease

What is Heartburn?

Heartburn is a burning sensation you feel in the chest caused by acid reflux, where stomach acid travels towards the throat. The continuous occurrence of this condition is called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD). 

What Are The Symptoms of Acid Reflux?

  • Heartburn – burning feeling in the middle of the chest
  • An unpleasant sour taste in the mouth, caused by the stomach acid
  • Persistent cough or hiccups
  • Hoarse voice
  • Bad breath
  • Bloating & feeling sick

How Can You Get Your HeartburnTested?

If you are suffering from continuous acid reflux even after using prescribed medication or if your symptoms are severe, our specialists at Springfield Medical Clinic will conduct tests such as a gastroscopy to assess your condition and recommend any treatments.
