Just because you suffer from heartburn, indigestion and acid reflux – the most common symptoms of GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease – it doesn’t mean na meron ka ngang GERD.
It’s important to note the difference between GER and GERD, wherein GERD is a long-lasting and more serious form of gastroesophageal reflux. It’s important to know other common symptoms that may indicate the onset of GERD, including but not limited to:
- Bad breath
- Sakit sa dibdib
- Sakit sa upper part ng abdomen
- Problem in swallowing
- Hirap sa paghinga
- Pagsira ng ngipin
- Dry cough
- Sore throat
If you suffer from these symptoms regularly or severely, always consult your doctor.
