I will try my best to answer your query.

He might be suffering from GERD, causes include smoking, alcohol, obesity and spicy food.
You can make many lifestyle changes to help treat your symptoms. Avoid foods that cause problems for you.
Over-the-counter and prescription drugs can treat GERD. They work more slowly than antacids but give you longer relief. PPI and H2 blockers will be helpful.
Blood in the spit may be due to smoking which causes irritation in the throat which may be responsible. Avoid smoking.

It is always to get yourself examined so i advice you to consult physician.

Hope my answer will be helpful for you.

Take care.

dear friend,
try taking chiruvilwadi kashayam 15 ml with 30 ml warm water morning and evening in empty stomach for three to four days. if that does not work its better to go to a doctor. and yes as the doctor said its wise to do an usg of the abdomen to rule out any other serious ailments.
hope i was helpful
thank you

Yes it could be GERD but there are chances of gastritis also. still better will be to have scan of whole abdomen to rule out cause of blood. Amount and nature of blood is also important. Be regular with diet don't eat stale or fast food have light meals may be more frequently, have a srawl before going to bed. Amongst herbs thyme fennel and rock salt can be taken. proper medicines after proper diagnosis.
