Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


GERD stands for gastroesophageal reflux disease.. so yes it is the same as acid reflux. There is a difference though between having GERD and the occasional heartburn.. but if you have that pain several times a week you most likely have GERD. It's a condition in which for some reason or another the muscle that closes off your stomach to keep contents from going back up into the esophagus does not work properly or is too weak. I know the pain.. been going through it for over 8 years, but I've only been on prescription meds for the last 3 years. Good luck with everything!
