Heartburn & GERD Quiz

Could Your Heartburn Be More than Just Heartburn?
Take Our 5-Minute Quiz to Find Out

Most people at one time or another suffer from heartburn, indigestion and/or bloating. Many times, these problems can be alleviated with over-the-counter medications and lifestyle changes. However, occasionally they may require medical attention. Chronic heartburn could be the sign of something more serious—gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD.

GERD is characterized by unrelenting acid reflux that can result in not only heartburn, but other symptoms as well, such as chronic cough. Take our brief quiz to find out if you should see a Heartburn Specialist.
