Brief Answer:
It could be due to gastritis

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mr XXXXXXX

Welcome to HCM. I have gone through the question and understand your concerns.

These symptoms are not specific to any disease. But it could be due to gastritis or Gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD). You can consult a gastroenterologist and do an endoscopy to confirm this.

Since he is alcoholic, it is better to do a liver function tests and ultrasound abdomen to see his liver and pancreas are ok.

Hope I have answered your questions. If you have any further queries I will be happy to help you.
