Brief Answer:
You are having symptoms of GERD

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.

Your symptoms are suggestive of gastroesophageal reflux disease. This occurs when stomach contents reflux in to the foodpipe.

Medications like omeprazole and certain lifetsyle changes help to get relief.
Lifestyle changes include weight reduction if obese, avoiding alcohol, smoking, coffee, citrus, tomatoes, fatty food and bedtime snacks. Eat small frequent meals and go to bed 2-3 hours after food.

I hope that answers your question.
Let me know if I can assist your further.
