Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a condition in which the acidic content of the stomach backs up into the esophagus, located behind the sternum, causing a burning sensation that can spread to the throat.
Gastroesophageal reflux causes a burning sensation in the lower part of the oesophagus (the duct that transports food from the mouth to the stomach). Reflux occurs when gastric fluids (gastric acid and digestive enzymes) go back up in the oesophagus.
