'Tis the Season
While the holidays pose many challenges, one you probably haven't thought about is the potential for experiencing heartburn. But, when you consider some of the behaviors that come along with an unusually stressful schedule, as well as a month-long diversion from "normal" eating, heartburn could be your body's way of telling you it needs a time out.
What is heartburn?
In general, the problem occurs when the LES either doesn't close properly, or opens spontaneously for a varying period of time. This results in the stomach's acids flowing backwards and entering into the esophagus. Physicians refer to this as acid reflux or gastroesophageal reflux (GER or GERD).
Since the esophagus does not have the protective qualities of the stomach, it can become extremely irritated when exposed to these acids. The irritation within the esophagus is what leads to the symptoms such as a sour taste in the mouth, difficulty in swallowing and a burning sensation in the chest and throat area.
Occasional heartburn is not uncommon, but if you are experiencing it more than twice a week, there's a chance you could be suffering from another more serious condition and should consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment. If left untreated (or treated only through self-medication) many of these conditions can become extremely severe.
The following are some of the more common triggers known to exacerbate heartburn:
