The underlying problem is likely gerd as consequence of abnormalities such as a hiatal hernia. ...Read more

Nothing is ever 100%, though. If you have risk factors for heart disease (smoking, obesity, high BP, diabetes, or a family history), see your doctor to be sure. Hope this helps! ...Read more
