Thanks for posting your query

The information you have provided is suggestive of reflux disease and you doctor is right

May be you appear under lot of stress, and stress would aggravate these symptoms

I would be of the opinion that you manage your stress levels first, along with it got for Tab Domperidone and Cap Rabeprazole twice a day for atleast six weeks

Follow these tips and you would feel comfortable :
1] Avoid spicy, fermented meals
2] Do not have heavy meals
3] Avoid smoking and alcohol
4] Wear loose clothes
5] Do not stoop
6] Do not lift heavy weights
7] Raise the head end of your bed
8] If Obese lose weight

Hope this helps
