Heartburn is a burning pain present behind your breastbone. The sensation may heighten after eating or at night. Heartburn might also happen when you lie in a horizontal position or when you lean over. When heartburn becomes uncontrollable, or it interrupts daily life, it may be an indication of a condition like acid reflux. The gastrointestinal providers at GI Alliance of Illinois will provide support and help to ease your concerns. When you are looking for help with heartburn relief in Illinois, we encourage you to connect with our team and request an appointment.
What are the symptoms of heartburn?
Although a lot of patients can handle heartburn without help, being aware of the symptoms is fundamental to controlling the problem. It also helps you to know when it is time to visit one of the gastrointestinal providers at GI Alliance of Illinois. The symptoms of heartburn are:
- Burning pain in your chest or throat after meals
- Bitter or acidic taste in your mouth
- Difficulty swallowing
- A hot feeling in your throat
- Discomfort that increases when lying flat or when bending forward
If you've been dealing with any of the following symptoms, request an appointment with our GI providers in our Chicago, IL office.
Common treatments for heartburn?
Normally, a quick way to reduce heartburn is to take over-the-counter antacids that aim to balance gastric acid to help you get relief fast. These particular products are ineffective at treating an esophagus that’s been damaged by gastric acid. In the event that OTC treatments aren't effective, or you believe you’ve been using them too often, our Chicago, Bloomington, Peoria, and Hinsdale gastrointestinal providers would be glad to see you. They will partner alongside you to help you find a solution to alleviate your heartburn successfully. Request an appointment now to receive the relief you need.
