Esophagitis has many names such as heartburn, gastroesophageal reflux, GERD, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and many more names synonymous with the condition.  The most common complaint in patients with esophagitis is heartburn (dyspepsia), a burning sensation in the mid chest caused by contact of stomach acid with inflamed esophageal mucosa.

Symptoms often are maximal while the person is supine, bending over, wearing tight clothing, or has eaten a large meal.
