Could Your Heartburn Be More than Just Heartburn?
Most people at one time or another suffer from heartburn, indigestion and/or bloating. Many times, these problems can be alleviated with over-the-counter medications and lifestyle changes.

It’s characterized by unrelenting acid reflux that can result in not only heartburn but other symptoms as well, such as chronic cough.
