People with acid reflux often describe having a burning sensation in their throat or chest. Other symptoms can include: 

  • A sour taste in your mouth 
  • Bad breath 
  • A hoarse voice 
  • A cough or hiccups 
  • Bloating and feeling sick 

 Severe acid reflux can be caused by an underlying medical condition; if you’ve suffered with these symptoms for three weeks or more, you should see your GP.
