Gastroesophageal reflux disease, commonly called GERD, is a digestive disorder in which the stomach's juices (acid and digestive enzymes) flow backwards, or reflux, into the esophagus. The esophagus is the tube that carries food from your mouth to your stomach. The lining of the esophagus canât handle these caustic substances, so the esophagus becomes inflamed. This causes heartburn and other symptoms. If GERD is not treated, it can permanently damage the esophagus.
