Heartburn is a burning sensation in the chest that occurs when stomach acid flows back up into the esophagus (the tube that connects the mouth to the stomach). This condition is also known as acid reflux. Heartburn can be uncomfortable and sometimes painful, and it may feel like a burning sensation in the chest, behind the breastbone, or in the throat.

Heartburn can occur after eating, especially after consuming foods that trigger acid reflux, such as spicy or fatty foods, citrus fruits, and caffeinated or carbonated beverages. It can also occur during pregnancy or after lying down or bending over.

In most cases, heartburn is not dangerous and can be managed with lifestyle changes and over-the-counter medications. However, if heartburn occurs frequently or is severe, it can lead to complications such as esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus), strictures (narrowing of the esophagus), or Barrett's esophagus (a condition where the lining of the esophagus changes due to chronic acid exposure).

It's essential to manage heartburn symptoms through lifestyle changes such as avoiding trigger foods, eating smaller meals more frequently, and elevating the head of the bed while sleeping. If symptoms persist or become severe, it's essential to consult a healthcare provider for further evaluation and treatment options.

  • Identify and avoid trigger foods: Common heartburn triggers include spicy, fatty, or acidic foods. Keep a food diary to identify which foods cause heartburn for you, and then avoid them as much as possible.
  • Eat smaller, more frequent meals: Instead of eating three large meals a day, try eating smaller, more frequent meals throughout the day. This can help prevent overeating and reduce the amount of acid in your stomach.
  • Don't lie down after eating: Wait at least two to three hours after eating before lying down or going to bed. This can help prevent acid from flowing back up into your esophagus while you sleep.
  • Chew gum after meals: Chewing gum can help stimulate saliva production, which can help neutralize stomach acid and reduce heartburn symptoms.
  • Lose weight if overweight: Being overweight can put pressure on your stomach, which can lead to heartburn. Losing weight through a healthy diet and exercise can help reduce heartburn symptoms.
  • Quit smoking: Smoking can irritate the esophagus and worsen heartburn symptoms. Quitting smoking can help reduce heartburn symptoms over time.
