for last 15-20 days whenever i drink a water i feel burning sensation between rib cage and stomach. this burning sensation is not there when i take food or tea. Doctor is saying i am having GERD. kindly tell me what is this burning sensation about. thanks.
Gerd is too much acid being produced in ur stomach.......depending on exactly what ur issues r, ur LES can be closing too slowly and it can allow the acids to move back up into ur esphopagus........
Dairy producats can slow that down......there r many foods that can affect the amount of acid produced......people with this condition are encouraged to see a GI dr and find out the cause...stress, hiatal hernia...ect....and get the proper meds and dosage.
In addition we need to make lifestlye changes and diet changes.....
