Diagnosing Acid Reflux Through Heartburn Symptoms

Heartburn is so often mistaken for a heart attack and vica versa. Understanding the symptoms of heartburn, the diagnostic tools and the treatment and prevention methods, will provide the sufferer with an improved pain response

Heartburn, commonly referred to as acid reflux, involves an over production of gastric fluids combined with a relaxed or irregular contraction of the esophageal sphincter. The esophageal sphincter is a musculature opening which contracts and expands allowing food and other digested products to pass through the stomach. When not involved in digestion, the spinchter works to prevent the flow of gastric juices from the stomach back into the esophagus. When acid reflux, or heartburn, is exacerbated, the pain associated with the heartburn is attributed to the gastric fluids flowing back into the esophagus. Pain can even be further exacerbated when fluids reach the back of the throat and jaw area.

Diagnosing acid reflux may require a variety of tests including a barium xray, Bernstein test, EGD and several other diagnostic studies. While some studies are more complex than others, it is through these studies the physician can determine the cause and origin of the acid reflux and rule out other comorbid factors which may be exacerbating the relaxation of the sphincter, or contributing to an overproduction of gastric juices. Once diagnosed with acid reflux, treatment can generally be provided with home remedies and prescription medication. Additionally, the physician will also recommend a variety of physical limitation including avoidance of lying down until pain dissipates as lying will further exacerbate the acid reflux and contribute to more severe heartburn symptoms.

Preventing heartburn is quite simple, for most sufferers, with a few modifications to diet and lifestyle. Smoking, for example, is believed to play a significant role in the development of heartburn as it promotes irregular esophageal sphincter contractions. Additionally, dietary modifications and restrictions including limiting caffeine intake, alcohol consumption and high levels of sodium intake will work to decrease the level of active gastric juices. Other factors such as pregnancy, obesity and stress can impact the sphincter and gastric juice miscombination leading to an attack of acid reflux and severe heartburn symptoms.

For sufferers of heartburn symptoms, obtaining relief from pain is the primary focus of treatment. Once pain is relieved, determining the cause and origin of the acid reflux and the remedies to prevent further exacerbations of heartburn, is the key primary factor for improving the acid reflux condition and improving esophageal sphincter activity.
