Hey, does anyone know if gastroesophageal reflux causes acid taste?

One should definitely consider anti-reflux surgery if your reflux is that bad.

Help please! Is gastroesophageal reflux and acid reflux the same thing?

Help please! Is gastroesophageal reflux and acid reflux the same thing?

Reflux: Gastro esophageal reflux disease, gerd, is also known as acid reflux. It is a phenomenon whereby, through a number of mechanisms, the contents of the stomach back up into the esophagus, a process known as reflux. The term acid reflux is not entirely correct as other stomach contents may reflux back up including bile and digestive enzymes, both of which may also damage the esophagus and cause pain.

What are the tests for gastroesophageal reflux disease?

Testing: I believe that symptoms are a good blue to gerd but I think that egd, and posibly oh probe are the best way to characterize the degree of reflux and severity of damages. I would add to that an UGI and gastric emptying. The symptoms of gerd can be due to several conditions. If one just uses symptoms as the diagnostic tool, I would not treat medically for longer than 4 weeks. It can be serious.
