If you have GERD, this muscle opens at times when it should be closed, letting small amounts of food and acid from your stomach move back up into your esophagus. This is called reflux. This pamphlet explains the symptoms of GERD, what you can do to help or prevent GERD, what foods can trigger reflux or make it worse, how your primary health care provider can help, and why it is important to control your symptoms.
