Chest pain? You Might Have Acute Acidity!
Acute acidity is quite a common problem. When we eat food (healthy or unhealthy), our stomach produces gases within its lining to liquefy the food. The real problem occurs when these cells produce a large amount of acid, more than what is required by the stomach. In extreme cases, this leads to heartburn, headache, stomach ache and finally, acidity.
