10 Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease Symptoms

Symptom #2: Pain in the Chest

The esophagus is a fairly long tube that connects the mouth to the stomach. It certainly encompasses the throat, but it actually extends a bit further into the abdomen. For this reason, people may also experience a burning sensation in their chest when they are going through heartburn if the acid only reaches the bottom of the esophagus.

People who don’t know how long their esophagus is might not associate pain in the chest with heartburn, since most people attribute it to the throat.
