Most people know what heartburn feels like. It’s that uncomfortable, burning sensation in your chest that is also called acid indigestion or gastroesophageal reflux (GER). If you experience heartburn occasionally, it is not a cause for concern.

However, according to a recent study by the Gallup Organization, an estimated 25 percent to 40 percent of healthy Americans experience a more serious form of acid reflux, called gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD. As many as 7 percent to 10 percent of adults has symptoms of GERD every day.
