Two Questions to Ask Yourself about Your Heartburn

Everyone suffers from indigestion at some point in their life. In fact, Dr. Lilah Mansour, GastroenterologistARC Far West Medical Tower and ARC Round Rock says, “Occasional indigestion, cramping, and acid reflux are normal and relatively common.” But, she continues, there are certain conditions under which your indigestion may be an indicator of a more serious issue.

In this recent podcast, Dr. Mansour asked two questions; “Do you also have abdominal pain or a change in your bowel habits? Are your symptoms occurring more often or lasting more than three weeks?” She says, if you answer yes to either of these, it’s time to see a doctor.
