The symptoms as mentioned by you can be attributed to Gastro esophageal reflux disease
, in which there is 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, in which the upper part of the stomach is wrapped around the lower esophageal sphincter to strengthen the sphincter and prevent acid reflux
So, it will be better to consult a Gastroenterologist
and discuss regarding the management plan.
There is no need to worry...you will be fine.
