In brief: Of course. But Why?

Gastric=stomach & upper 2/3 lined with cells which secrete hydrochloric acid (inhibits bacterial growth) under brain control.
With healthy subconscious control of esophagus, bottom of esophagus only relaxes as solid/liquid is pushed down. If stomach contents repeatedly pushed back up, esp. When lots of acid present, then esophagus damaged over time; can eventually promote esophagus cancer.
