Regurgitation: Stomach contents that leave the stomach and go into the esophagus is the definition of reflux. If you have a normal functioning stomach then acid is present in the stomach contents. Therefore, most episodes of reflux are acid reflux. This occurs in everyone. If you have pain with these reflux events then you might have acid reflux disease.
