Acid peptic disease is a possibility.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.
The symptoms you have mentioned more likely suggestive of acid peptic disease.
As of now she can try over the counter available antacids like omeprazole or pantoprazole for symptomatic relief. Avoid spicy foods and include more fruits and vegetables to her diet.
I suggest you to get a basic blood work( complete blood count)up to rule out anemia.
Hope I have answered your query.
Thanks
