Doctor : Heartburn is the symptom of a condition called gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, in which acid juice from the stomach returns into the oesophagus. This may lead to a harsh, burning sensation in the upper abdomen, moving through the chest and throat to the neck.
User : ok..
User : nay medicine for that...
User : yes thats the way i feel..
Doctor : What contributes to a heartburn?
Doctor : # Fatty and spicy foods delay stomach emptying leading to an increased tendency to reflux.
# Certain types of medications like ibuprofen.
# Excessive alcohol intake and smoking.
# Obesity, which may lead to an increased pressure in the abdominal cavity, causing the contents of the stomach to move back to the oesophagus.
