5 Things That Are Making Your Heartburn Worse
There are two main causes of acid reflux, Bucobo says: an underlying medical problem like a hiatal hernia, which happens when the upper part of your stomach pushes up into your chest cavity, or a trigger that relaxes the sphincter muscle in your esophagus that normally blocks stomach acid from rising back up your throat. Certain foods and behaviors can relax the muscle. Although Bucobo says food triggers are different for every patient, certain ones pop up again and again.
Caffeinated foods and drinks—like coffee, tea, and even chocolate—are biggies. "I've had patients who think they're doing everything right, but then I have them record a food diary," Bucobo says. "I look and they've been drinking three bottles of caffeinated iced tea a day!"

You know that moment about 20 minutes after you scarf down Thanksgiving dinner when your chest starts to burn? Yep, that's an after-effect of eating your weight in turkey, mashed potatoes, and candied yams. As soon as you start eating, your body revs up digestion and starts producing stomach acid. The more food you put in, the longer it takes to move that food, and the acid, to your intestines. "So your body is producing all this acid and it's not emptying out into the small intestine," Bucobo says.
