In brief: GERD
GERD - gastroesophageal reflux disease is due to stomach acid and juices that travel backwards up the esophagus and the acid causes a burning sensation, sometimes it can be severe enough that it causes chest pain.
Complications of GERD can be weight loss, loss of appetite, painful swallowing, cough, pneumonia from aspiration and even lead to cancer of the esophagus over time.
