General & Family Physician 's  Response
Most likely you are suffering from GERD Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease.
1-Life style Change: No smoking, No beverages on empty stomach including Tea and Coffee, Breakfast by 0800 Hours daily, Deep fried fatty tasty looking food should be avoided, Chocolate is strict no no, chew your food before swallowing, no bending running
lifting after meals, never lay down with your back up, best is side ways, try and get the
head side up about 15 degrees.
2- Medication includes all Peptic ulcer medicines for 4-6 weeks.

but keep in mind without life style change you will not have permanent cure.
