hi there,
am dr.surendran
nice to meet you here in HCMagic
More common symptoms are:

Feeling that food is stuck behind the breastbone

Heartburn or a burning pain in the chest (under the breastbone)

Increased by bending, stooping, lying down, or eating

More likely or worse at night

Relieved by antacids

Nausea after eating

Less common symptoms are:

Bringing food back up (regurgitation)

Cough or wheezing

Difficulty swallowing


Hoarseness or change in voice

Sore throat

You can make many lifestyle changes to help treat your symptoms. Avoid foods that cause problems for you. Making changes to your routine before you go to sleep may also help
Avoid drugs such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), or naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn). Take acetaminophen (Tylenol) to relieve pain. Take your medicines with plenty of water. When your doctor gives you a new medicine, remember to ask whether it will make your heartburn worse.
hope helped your query
