Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD as it’s known by most, is a condition that many people suffer from. If you have GERD, you are constantly worrying about whether or not certain foods will affect you more than others, how well you’ll be able to stay asleep at night, where the closest restroom is, and other unpleasant symptoms.

It’s even possible to be prescribed specific medications (or even surgery!) to reduce the symptoms you’re experiencing with GERD.
