Brief Answer:
Probably gastroesophageal reflux, more details are needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to gastroesophageal reflux.

Some other details that may help me through the diagnosis are:

When did your symptoms begin?

Does any food improve or trigger the symptoms?

Have the acidity been continuous?

Have you used any medication to relieve the symptoms?

Meanwhile, I would recommend to use antacids such as Mylanta.

I would also recommend using medications that block acid production such as Omeprazole 20 mg.

This medication should be taken in the morning before breakfast for at least a week.

I also suggest you to eat a healthy diet and avoid caffeine or spicy food.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:
I confirm that it can be gastroesofageal reflux, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again dear,

I confirm that your symptoms can be related to gastroesofageal reflux.

I recommend you to follow the advice that I give above.

You can find Omeprazole 20mg over the counter opinion with the name Prilosec OTC.

I recommend to take one tablet a day before breakfast for a week.

Mylanta is also an over the counter medication.

You can take three times a day this medication for a week.

If the symptoms continue you should see a gastrologist for further evaluation.

Wish you a good health.

Take care dear,

Dr.Dorina Gurabardhi
