When undigested food and acid move back up to the throat from the stomach, the condition is known as acid reflux or heartburn. It can result in a bad taste in the mouth, burping and a burning sensation, sometimes a dry cough, wheezing and difficulty in swallowing. An individual of any age group and even a baby can develop such symptoms.
Lifestyle changes to avoid spicy, acidic and junk food, and limiting overeating and drinking alcohol can prevent acid reflux. Avoiding a sedentary lifestyle and weight gain can also improve symptoms. It is treated with antacids and some medications.
