I did my project along the lines of acid reflux. Gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD for short occurs when our esophageal sphincter that prevents back flow becomes very week and people experience heart burn two times a week or more. Something that can commonly happen at the same time is for the area in the diaphragm that makes room for the esophagus, the hiatus, can expand allowing the stomach to actually move upward causing even more pain and more reflux. The main reason I chose this topic was because I had an uncle that went through the exact same thing. In the project I attempted to show what a hiatal hernia would look like (apologies in advance since I’m bad with art).
