GORD (Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease) is a common condition where acid from the stomach leaks out of the stomach up into the oesophagus. Acid Reflux is a digestive condition that occurs in around 20% of the population in Australia. It can affect people of all ages, including children; however, it is most common in adults over 40 years old. It is also more common amongst men than women. Acid reflux occurs when stomach acid leaks out of the stomach and into the gullet.This can cause a burning sensation to occur in the upper chest area, and a bad taste at the back of your throat. Acid reflux is most commonly caused by weakening of the lower sphincter muscles of the gullet. GORD occurs only occasionally for some people, but if the symptoms persist, it's usually regarded as a condition that needs treatment.
Common symptoms of GORD include:
- acid reflux – unpleasant taste in the mouth, caused by stomach acid
- pain or difficulty when swallowing
