If you have a "searing" sensation in the digestive tract, you have one of the most common symptoms of GERD. This sensation can often be felt in the throat or the chest. Other common symptoms are hoarseness, an acrid taste in the mouth, bitterness or sourness in the mouth, frequent coughing and wheezing.

There are some special characteristics that can help indicate the existence of GERD. One of them is the presence of pain or that "searing" sensation when one is lying down or just bending over. If this should occur, try to sleep on the back with the head elevated. Some people claim that physical activity and exercise help diminish acid reflux over time. The vast majority of people simply use antacids which can be helpful in the short term but medical help should be sought to address the long-term effects of acid reflux. GERD symptoms are often mistaken for symptoms of heart attack and any type of chest pain should be investigated medically.
