U have gastritis . It seems that ur a coffee lover.. It happens with many coffee addicts...
U need to replenish ur gut bacteria by consuming lot of curds and milk in ur meals or breakfast.. Take a omez insta sachet and keep in ur purse or at home... When ever u have symptoms u can put the contents of sachet in water and consume vl give u instant relief. Cut down ur coffee intake...curds and milk preferrably cold one( boiled and cooled ) need to be incorporated into ur diet avoid symptoms..

Hi, Thanks for the query to H.C.M.C.
Spiced food
Above mentioned causes are sufficient to produce esophagitis ( gastritis or hyper acidity) , you can call it as heart burn and symptom begins from mouth to stomach as nausea, vomiting, sore mouth,chest pain ( because esophagus is in the chest), excessive burping, bloating, knot formation ( seems to something stuck during water drinking).
Perhaps you would have understand your problem and disease.
Each and every tests will come out normal or within normal limit.
If you want to get rid off this disease pl avoid all causes which are responsible for your condition.
Consult a physician and have a treatment but precaution is the best treatment.
Good luck. Dr. HET.

Do you drink too?U seem to have gastroesophageal reflux disease,may be theres a tear in the wall of the esophago-gastric junction due to retching which caused you sharp severe pain(Mallory-Weiss syndrome)..Smoking,cofee all irritate/increases acidity in the stomach toomuch,so better go for green tea.Get an abdominal xray, also endoscopy to find out the cause.
