Many people occasionally have a sour stomach or heartburn but if you experience it quite often then you may have a Hiatal Hernia or Gastro-Esophageal Reflux or GERD. This is where the acid in the stomach enters the esophagus causing a burning or bloated feeling. When we lie down this can become worse as the acid reaches the throat and can cause choking or coughing.
How do you deal with this issue? There are many causes of it but there are some things you can do that will help.
