Is Severe Bloating An Acid Reflux Symptom?

Can bloating and a feeling of an air-filled stomach be a symptom of acid reflux or GERD?

Answer

The feeling of gas can be a symptom of reflux, but sudden or unexplained or severe bloating can be a concern that should be looked at by a doctor. Any symptom that is sudden onset like this and that lasts for any significant length of time should be checked by a doctor as soon as possible. The Internet is a good resource for finding general information on conditions, but only an actual in-person examination can correctly diagnose an issue.
