Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

You are having symptoms of acid peptic disease.
An upper GI endoscopy may be done for evaluation.

For relief, you may take medications like Esomeprazole once a day before breakfast for 4 weeks.

I hope that answers your question.
