Heartburn is a painful, burning sensation in the lower chest or throat that occurs when stomach acid backs up (or ‘refluxes’) and irritates the sensitive lining of the esophagus. The esophagus is the tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach.
Normally, the lower esophageal sphincter acts like a trapdoor, letting food down into the stomach, while preventing stomach acids from coming back up into the esophagus. When it becomes too relaxed, it can allow stomach acid to flow backward into the esophagus, resulting in heartburn.
