What are the symptoms of GERD?

Symptoms of GERD result from acid exposure to the esophagus.  The classic symptom of GERD is heartburn, a burning feeling that radiates from the stomach to the neck, typically occurring after meals.  Other common symptoms include acid regurgitation and difficulty swallowing.  Some less common symptoms include nausea, hiccups, chest pain, cough, asthma, sore throat, and hoarseness.
