Does GERD have symptoms other than heartburn?
Not everyone with gastroesophageal reflux disease has heartburn. Other symptoms of GERD include regurgitation of bitter acid up into the throat while sleeping or bending over; bitter taste in the mouth; persistent dry cough; hoarseness (especially in the morning); feeling of tightness in the throat, as if a piece of food is stuck there; wheezing; and bad breath.
The most common symptoms in children are repeated vomiting, coughing, and other respiratory problems.
