Were you looking for information about GERD symptoms? GERD systoms is a common misspelling of GERD symptoms.
 
GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) occurs when stomach acid goes back into the esophagus long enough to damage it. The most common symptom of GERD is heartburn. The pain or discomfort caused by heartburn usually starts in the middle of the chest, and can move up through the throat. Other GERD symptoms include chest pain, sore throat, and painful swallowing.
