Hi,

Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, I would suggest that you should get yourself clinically examined and investigated by your doctor.
You can take an antacid like Omeprazole with Domperidone after discussing with your treating doctor.

Avoid spicy and oily foods. Drink lots of water daily.

I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.

Regards. Thanks.
