Common symptoms of acid reflux are:


  • Heartburn -- a burning pain or discomfort that may move from your stomach to your abdomen or chest, or even up into your throat.

  • Regurgitation -- a sour or bitter-tasting acid backing up into your throat or mouth.



Other symptoms of acid reflux disease include:

  • Bloating.

  • Bloody or black stools, or bloody vomiting.

  • Burping.

  • Dysphagia -- a narrowing of your esophagus, which creates the sensation of food being stuck in your throat.

  • Hiccups that don't let up.

  • Nausea.

  • Weight loss for no known reason.

  • Wheezing, dry cough, hoarseness, or chronic sore throat.
