Don’t Ignore These Heartburn Symptoms and Causes

Heartburn is a very uncomfortable condition characterized by tightness in the chest and pain. This is a very common problem and many people experience heartburn frequently. While it is colloquially called ‘heartburn’, it really has nothing to do with the heart.

Some of its symptoms are very similar to the signs of a stroke or heart attack. Heartburn occurs when there is a movement or irritation in the esophagus, the muscular tube that connects the throat to the stomach. When this happens there is usually a burning sensation in the chest.

Heartburn is not a disease. This is something that happens due to acid reflux. When the gas present in the intestine starts flowing towards the throat, there is a burning sensation in the chest.

According to experts, in some people heartburn starts and goes away on its own, while in others it can last for a few hours.

Why is there anger?

There is a muscular valve between the esophagus and the intestine. When it’s working properly, stomach acid stays inside the stomach, but when the valve keeps opening too often or doesn’t close properly, stomach acid flows up into the esophagus. This is known as acid reflux.

Which foods cause heartburn?

Foods that contain high amounts of fat or oil can cause heartburn. Apart from this, too many spices or foods like citrus fruits, tomatoes, sour foods, ginger, onions, coffee, alcohol, mint etc. can cause acidity.
