When the acid reflux back to the esophagus, in patients with pains of GERD, stimulating nerve fibers in the esophagus. This nerve stimulation results in the most common heartburn, and the pain is characteristic of gastroesophageal reflux. Heartburn is often described as burning pain in the chest in the Middle East. It may start, in the abdomen or may extend into the neck. In some patients, however, may be acute pain or pressure-like, rather than combustion. This pain can mimic heart pain (angina pectoris).
