Does it feel like something sour is building up in your throat?

Do you have chest pain or find it difficult to swallow sometimes?

Have these symptoms caused restless days and sleepless nights and have lasted for weeks, months or even years?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be one of millions who suffer from a problem known as gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Q. How much water should I drink every day?

First, water intake is a health issue that you should discuss with your doctor before deciding how much you should drink. The amount you drink is dependent upon the state of your health.

The simplest answer I could find to this very complicated question is this: If you aren't thirsty and you produce one to two quarts of light yellow urine daily the average output for an adult you're probably taking in enough water.
