    Default Acidez Estomacal

    El título lo dice todo: ¿Cómo se dice acidez estomacal en inglés?

    I've heard so too: stomach burning

    That certainly is a lot better than the "acid stomach" I received in this translation. I know there's another term for it, I just can't seem to recal!

    acidity of the stomach – pyrosis – cardialgia
    sometimes called : heartburn

    nothing to do with your question :
    my favourite drink is a Spanish one, it is called Bonet,
    that is a digestive drink and it used to be called “estomacal Bonet”
    hence “Acidez estomacal” drew my attention.

    I call it heartburn, even though it has nothing to do with the heart. If I go to the doctor I'd say "heartburn" but there might be a more precise medical term to describe it, I am not sure is reflux is the same thing or something specific of babies. English has a tendency to have a *posh* word and a colloquial form sometimes, so you need to sure of the context.

    You’re absolutely right. It is heartburn: a burning discomfort behind the lower part of the sternum usually related to spasm of the lower end of the esophagus or of the upper part of the stomach often in association with gastroesophageal reflux -- called also cardialgia, pyrosis

    Popette, I’m glad I had the opportunity to correct my mistake. I’ve been living in Spain for 12 years and from what I see, from my first post, I am forgetting some of my English.

    I have been living in England for 10 years and I also forget my Spanish! Glad I am not the only one!!. I told my mum on the phone yesterday that I couldn't hear myself thinking (no me puedo escuchar pensar en la cabeza) and she got quite sarky with me saying: "nice saying you've just made up Belén, shame it doesn't even sound remotely Spanish" etc etc...Parents eh!
