Brief Answer:
Likely this is gastritis and reflux disease.

Detailed Answer:

Likely. This is a gastritis and reflux disease. Do you also have upper abdominal pain, nausea, bloating, burping, increase in pain with food, sour water feeling in the throat or chest burning, these are the other symptoms and may be associated.

You should avoid fatty, oily and spicy diet. Have some walk after having food instead of taking a rest. Have multiple small meals instead of heavy meals. Have regular sleep habits and avoid stress. Lots of green leafy vegetables, fruits. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any.

You can get prescribed tab Pan DSR or Esomiprazole-Domperidone combination before breakfast once a day for 2 weeks. If not, adequately relieved, then you should add Syrup Sucral O or Gelusil two teaspoons three times a day for a week.
