CIMA Medical Center in Miami Springs shares some information about Signs of Chronic Reflux.
Reflux symptoms, including heartburn, are caused by stomach acid backing into the esophagus.
The esophagus is a tube that connects your mouth to your stomach that serves as a passageway for food.
When the sphincter – the “doorway” between esophagus and stomach – doesn’t close tightly, reflux occurs.
