In brief: Food

Food is the usual cause of heartburn, which is a burning sensation or sour taste in the back of your throat.
Severe cases can be due to ulcers and can even lead to cancer of the esophagus. Avoidance of foods that cause heartburn is the primary recommendation but daily medication may be necessary if symptoms continue or occur during sleep.
