Q: What is heartburn?

A: Heartburn is often described as a feeling of burning discomfort, localized behind the breastbone, which moves up toward the neck and throat. Some people even experience the bitter or sour taste of acid in the back of the throat. These symptoms of heartburn can last for several hours and often worsen after eating food. All of us may have occasional heartburn.
