Heartburn can be triggered by spicy foods, overeating, eating too fast, alcohol and tobacco. Pregnancy and GERD are also causes of heartburn. Heartburn pain may start at the breastbone, and move upward toward the esophagus.

Certain foods can cause it such as red pasta sauce (tomatoes are acidic) or hot/spicy foods, over-eating, and drinks like coffee or alcohol. The stomachh produces to much acid and it begins to come out of the stomac and into the esophagus/throat.
