Doctor :   What contributes to a heartburn?
Doctor :   # Fatty and spicy foods delay stomach emptying leading to an increased tendency to reflux.
# Certain types of medications like ibuprofen.
# Excessive alcohol intake and smoking.
# Obesity, which may lead to an increased pressure in the abdominal cavity, causing the contents of the stomach to move back to the oesophagus.
