Yes.: If this happens frequently you should see your doctor to evaluate for reflux problem. The acid going up to your esophagus all the time will cause damages to the esophageal lining and avoid food that trigger this.

Not usually: Occasionally food and stomach juice may back wash into the esophagus, but when there is increase in frequency & severity of these episodes damage to the lining of the esophagus occurs. A barrier exists that prevents this from occurring frequently at the junction of the esophagus and stomach; GE sphincter. A lot of problem with reflux is underestimated. Consult with a doctor for control. Take care
