Variable : GERD symptoms, typically heartburn and regurgitation, can vary in severity and frequency, and depend on many factors including diet and stress. These things are obviously highly variable among individuals. Based on your own experience, you should have a good idea how often you will have the symptoms. Hope this helps!
