Heartburn and gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD)


Heartburn and gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD)

Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is a common condition, where acid from the stomach leaks up into the oesophagus (gullet).
It usually occurs as a result of the ring of muscle at the bottom of the oesophagus becoming weakened. Read more about the causes of GORD.
GORD causes symptoms such as heartburn and an unpleasant taste in the back of the mouth. It may just be an occasional nuisance for some people, but for others it can be a severe, lifelong problem.
GORD can often be controlled with self-help measures and medication. Occasionally, surgery to correct the problem may be needed.This topic focuses on GORD in adults.

Symptoms of GORD can include:

  • heartburn (an uncomfortable burning sensation in the chest that often occurs after eating)
  • acid reflux (where stomach acid comes back up into your mouth and causes an unpleasant, sour taste)
  • oesophagitis (a sore, inflamed oesophagus)
  • bad breath
  • bloating and belching
  • feeling or being sick
  • pain when swallowing and/or difficulty swallowing
