  • Is Your Heartburn ‘Normal’? ~ Dr. Margarita Murphy, Charleston SC

    Heartburn is normally described as an unpleasant burning sensation in the throat (or sometimes the chest). Most often triggered by spicy foods or rambunctious activity after eating this uncomfortable feeling sometimes has no trigger at all.  If you feel your heartburn is becoming a daily occurrence or interfering with your daily life, you notice a persistent cough, increased belching, nausea or vomiting along with your heartburn or if you have noticed trouble swallowing regular food or drink we suggest seeing your local gastroenterologist for relief.


    Dr. Margarita Murphy at Colon Surgeons of Charleston suggestions heartburn occurring several times a week for longer than a two week period should be examined by a health professional. Chronic untreated heartburn can lead to inflammation of the esophagus, esophageal ulcers, gastritis and more.

    Colon Surgeons in Charleston, SC will assess your daily activity, diet, medications and health to determine a successful treatment for your chronic heartburn. Schedule an appointment today.
