There is one universal sign of acid reflux of which even a 5-year old will know, that is the burning sensation that will be felt in the chest following eating anything rich in oil or spices. Sometimes, even a cheese burger can provoke extreme signs of acid reflux.
Other Than The Burning Sensation In The Throat, Are There Any Other Signs Of Acid Reflux Which Are As Uncomfortable?
There are many symptoms other than the regular burning sensation, the trademark sign of acid reflux, and these are sore throat, acid regurgitation, bad breath (halitosis), yellow teeth in spite of following a good mouth hygiene, dry cough, bitterness taste in the mouth, hoarse breathing and so on. All these symptoms are maybe just as bad as the constant burning sensation that one gets after eating anything at all.
The king of all symptoms is the most misunderstood sign of acid reflux of all. This is the acid reflux and chest pain. Many people, nowadays, rush to the doctor when they have chest pain, thinking it is heart attack, only to find that everything is in order and they come out relieved. A word of advice here: no matter how many times you get a false alarm, if your chest hurts, by all means go for a check up. This is too serious for you to ignore. This is literally life and death.
There is a very close association between acid reflux and heart/chest pain and this symptom is also known as heartburn. Actually, what it wants to show you is where the pain actually radiates from. This symptom is called heartburn, maybe because most of the pain looks like it is radiating from the centre of the chest.
It looks like when the pain is coming from the heart it is because of two major reasons – (i) because the acidity that goes behind it pains, and (ii) creates bad vibes. However, the good part in this disease is that it can immediately checked and repaired – just as we used to roam around.
Learn to differentiate between the heartburn and heart related chest-pains. The heartburn usually increases and decreases with the intake of certain foods – especially oily foods. On the other hand, when the heart pains, any exertion will make you feel that your heart is going to burst – then that is genuinely heart pain. GET HELP SOON!
