GERD is a digestive disorder in which stomach acids, food and fluids flow back into the esophagus from the stomach. You may notice a burning feeling in the chest and throat or a bitter taste in your mouth. The burning, pressure or pain may last as long as 2 hours and is often worse after eating. Other signs that you may have GERD include: bad breath, coughing, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, difficulty swallowing and erosion of your teeth.

If you have been diagnosed with GERD, nutrition and lifestyle changes may help, including the foods you choose and the way in which you eat.
