Hi there,

Please don't worry.

You could try following the below mentioned measures.

1. If you are overweight, do try to reduce your weight.
2. Avoid deep fried ,oily food,spicy food, carbonated beverages, alcohol & smoking.
3. You could take pantoprazole 1 tab daily half an hour before breakfast for a month.
4. Do yoga/relaxation exercise to reduce stress. Stress also contributes to acidity.
5. Regular exercise 30-45 minutes daily for 5 days a week.
6. While sleeping, keep the head end slightly elevated.
7. Avoid lying down immediately after a meal. Wait for at least 2 hours after a meal before lying down.
8. Have smaller frequent meals rather than 3 large meals.
9. Have sips of water at regular intervals.

Hope this helps.
