radiation and acid reflux

I had 5 days of partial breast radiation in November 2008.  Now I've suddenly developed acid reflux--I've never had it before, with the exception of during pregnancies.

Can radiation be a cause of the acid reflux?  I'm freaking out--I don't need any new health problems right now!

Thank you,
Nan

Hi!

Could be.  Please discuss this with your radiation oncologist, ok?

Warmly,
