Acid reflux or heartburn occurs when liquid content from the stomach refluxes into the esophagus. If acid reflux happens more than twice a week, it can be considered as gastroesophageal reflux disorder (GERD). Complications of acid reflux may include esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus), strictures (narrowing of the esophagus) and Barrett's esophagus.
