Western Wisconsin Health offers the latest treatment options for heartburn and chronic acid reflux disease. Frequent or constant heartburn is the most common symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) — a disease in which stomach acid (or occasionally bile) flows back (refluxes) into the esophagus. Mild heartburn discomfort can often be managed with lifestyle modifications and over-the-counter medications, but if the heartburn is more severe, additional care may be needed to achieve more permanent or long-term relief.
