Non-cardiac chest pain and chronic cough are just two of the extraesophageal manifestations of gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD. What other symptoms should we look for? If a patient displays characteristics of GERD, such as esophogeal regurgitation, is that patient also likely to experience extraesophogeal manifestations of GERD? Dr. John Inadomi, the Dean M. Craig Endowed Chair in Gastrointestinal Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, explains what distinguishes extraesophogeal manifestations of GERD from GERD symptoms. Do proton pump inhibitors treat both GERD and its extraesophogeal symptoms? Dr. Jay Goldstein hosts.
