The symptoms as mentioned by you suggest that you might be having Gastro esophageal reflux disease
, which is caused by the reflux of acid from stomach to esophagus due to relaxation of the sphincter at the lower part of esophagus.
Management consists of:
1. Lifestyle modification- like weight reduction, sleeping on the left side, or with upper body raised.
2. Dietary modification- avoid consuming irritating substances such as acidic & rich foods, caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol.
3. Medical management- Proton pump
inhibitors like Omeprazole
,etc. (which prevent acid formation in stomach)
4. Surgical treatment- includes Fundoplication, done when medical measures fail.
If symptoms still persist, it will be better to consult a Gastroenterologist
There is no need to worry...you will be fine.
Wish you a good health & speedy recovery.
Thanks & Take care.
