From the symptoms it looks like gastritis with may be gastro-esophageal reflux.You can give a try to oral antacids.Avoid any spicy food, smoking or alcohol.

Some times heart issues have atypical presentation, so keep a watch on symptoms like chest pain,pain radiating to arm,SOB, increase in symptoms even on regular exertion or dizziness. Getting a precautionary EKG done just to be on safer side would be surely a wise decision.

Hope this answers your question.
