Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

The possible cause is GERD going by the information you have given. Gastritis is also present as per your endoscopy report.

You can take acid suppressive medications after consulting your doctor.

The following should also be done.

1. Avoid smoking, alcohol, coffee, chocolates, citrus, tomatoes, spicy food, fatty food, carbonated beverages
2. Avoid heavy meals. Eat smaller frequent meals
3. Go to bed at least 2-3 hours after food.

I hope that answers your question.
