Acidity can be caused by three things

1. Yous stomach is more sensitive to acid then usual
2. you have an ulcer in the stomach
3. Your stomach acid contents are refluxing into your food pipe

The solutions to all three is the same. You need to to take proton pump inhibitors (eg: Pantocid etc... which can be prescribed by your local doctor) once daily 30 minutes before meals for atleast 1-2 months.

Hope this answers you question.
