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

I understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related acid reflux.

I would recommend to treat acid reflux for relief.

So, I would recommend to take antacids to lower the acidity in the stomach.

I can recommend Mylanta as an over the counter medication.

I also recommend to use medication which blocks the production of acid in the stomach.

I suggest Omeprazole 20 mg which can be found over the counter.

In case of severe pain I suggest Baclofen.

Baclofen may ease the lower esophageal sphincter.

You should avoid factors that can trigger the symptoms such as spicy food, tight clothes or stress.

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