Thanks for posting your query

This is what I gather from your information

You probably are suffering from Gastritis [Acidity in non medical language]
Avoid fried foods, Fermented and spicy foods
Avoid smoking and alcohol if used to
Avoid heavy meals

There is excessive distention of stomach leading to tight feeling above belly button, which compresses the diaphragm leading to shortness of breath

Hope this helps
