What is Acid Reflux? Acid reflux occurs when the contents from your stomach come up into your esophagus. Because your food has mixed with the digestive juices in your stomach (which are acidic for the purpose of breaking down your food) the food that comes up is sour or acidic and quite unpleasant.
The pH test for acid reflux (gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD) measures how often and for how long stomach acid enters the esophagus, and how well it clears the esophagus.
Halitosis is the medical term for sour or bad breath. Bad breath can be a short term syndrome or a long term disease known as chronic halitosis.
Learn how esophageal pH monitoring is used for measuring stomach acid to diagnose GERD, as well as side effects, limitations and alternatives to this test. This test can help diagnose whether acid reflux is causing chest pain, cough, hoarseness, and sore throat.
