 It is caused by frequent acid reflux. When you swallow, a circular band of muscle around the bottom of your esophagus (lower oesophageal sphincter) relaxes to permit food and liquid to flow into your stomach. Then the sphincter closes over. If the sphincter relaxes unusually or weakens, stomach acid can flow back up into your esophagus. This constant reflex of acid irritates the lining of your esophagus, often causing it to become inflamed.
