Gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR) occurs when the stomach contents including acid move back up into the oesophagus. Patients usually describe their symptoms as heartburn or indigestion. Sufferers often report increased reflux after large fatty or spicy meals, particularly when eaten close to bedtime. GOR is more common in overweight individuals, but those of an acceptable weight can also suffer. Chronic reflux can result in oesophagitis (inflamed oesophagus), further increasing sensitivity to acid and foods.
