Heartburn Awareness Week

Perhaps it’s not a coincidence Heartburn Awareness Week is the same week as Thanksgiving.

Doctor Amanda Swingley of Ascension St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis says acid reflux happens when the contents of your stomach move up into your esophagus.

She urges you to call your doctor and get a checkup if you feel like the reflux has gone on too long.

If you don’t, it could lead to more serious health problems.
