Quiz: Which of These Helps Prevent Heartburn?
Heartburn is an uncomfortable feeling that occurs when the acid in your stomach travels back up your esophagus. It can cause a burning sensation in your chest or throat and may also leave a bitter or acidic taste in your mouth. Heartburn can be caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or may occur due to your habits or certain foods you eat.
More than 60 million Americans suffer from heartburn at least once a month. While occasional heartburn isn’t dangerous, chronic heartburn may eventually damage your esophagus. The good news is many people may be able to prevent or minimize heartburn with lifestyle changes. Take this quiz to see what may help ease your symptoms.
