Final Thoughts

There are a number of symptoms of GERD, with heartburn being the most common. However, not everyone with heartburn has GERD. For people who only get occasional heartburn, over-the-counter medications often relieve the discomfort. But if you experience heartburn two or more times a week, or if over-the-counter antacids work only temporarily or not at all, you may have GERD. If you think you have gastroesophageal reflux disease, talk to your healthcare provider. GERD treatment is available. For most people, treatment is quite successful in relieving their symptoms.
