Let’s talk About Heart Burns

Heartburn is a burning feeling in the chest caused by stomach acid travelling up toward the throat (acid reflux). If it keeps happening, it's called gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD).

The main symptoms of acid reflux are:

heartburn – a burning sensation in the middle of your chest

an unpleasant sour taste in your mouth, caused by stomach acid

You may also have:

a cough or hiccups that keep coming back

a hoarse voice

bad breath

bloating and feeling sick

Symptoms are often worse after eating, when lying down and when bending over.

Causes of heartburn and acid reflux

Lots of people get heartburn from time to time. There's often no obvious reason why.

Sometimes it's caused or made worse by:

certain food and drink – such as coffee, tomatoes, alcohol, chocolate and fatty or spicy foods

Being overweight



Stress and Anxiety

An increase in some types of hormones, such as progesterone and oestrogen

Some medicines, such as anti-inflammatory painkillers (like ibuprofen)

A hiatus hernia – when part of your stomach moves up into your chest.
