Many of the acid reflux patients I work with don't simply deal with the basic heartburn symptoms. One symptom that is frequently mentioned is painful belly bloat. Not only is this bloat painful, but when you can't fit into your jeans it's downright annoying. Most of the reasons for belly bloat can be changed with some simple tweaks.
