I frequently feel a burning sensation in my throat, sometimes till the mouth, after eating. I guess it's Gastroesophagael reflux disease (GERD). I read it recently in the paper about it. Seems like the gastric juices come up my throat. After eating to my fill, if I do some bending work, the juices come up my throat and the burning sensation starts, sometimes lasting for an hour. I've got a smoking habit and used to smoke a lot for the past 2 years. But, I've reduced it drastically in recent times and I'm on the verge of leaving it. I've read that smoking is also a cause for this problem. What other lifestyle changes should I do, like what to eat and what not to eat. Please suggest how to cure these effects. What should I do to confirm my diagnosis of this problem?
