Gastroesophageal reflux disease( GERD ) refers to the chronic symptoms that occur as a result of the hydrochloric acid in the stomach entering the oesophagus. This phenomenon, also called acid reflux, results in the damage of the mucosal lining of the esophagus. If the reflux reach higher and into the throat, it is called laryngo-pharyngeal reflux disease. The rear of the throat, and the nasal passages, are extremely sensitive to this acid onslaught. This in turn can lead to long- term airway problems, ear infections, hoarseness and sinusitis.
