Heartburn is a painful, warm, burning sensation in the chest, which typically comes and goes in waves. Medically, the condition is known as pyrosis or acid indigestion. It is generally seen that the pain starts from the chest area but can travel to the neck, throat and jaw. It usually occurs soon after a heavy, fatty meal and leaves a very sour taste in the mouth because of the gastro-esophageal reflux.  Today, Dr. Arpit Jain, Internal Medicine Consultant at Artemis Health Institute, helps us understand the most frequent heartburn concerns. *Images courtesy: © Thinkstock photos/ Getty Images
