Brief Answer:
Acid Peptic Disease.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.

Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.

What you are describing classically fits into Acid Peptic Disease, that might be associated with Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).

I would advise you to get an ECG done because many a times, cardiac issues also presents like this. However with your description cardiac issues are unlikely. But it is always better to be sure.

I advise in such condition following:

1. To take Soft Bland Diet
2. Avoid Spicy food, Tea and Coffee.
3. To take a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone once a day for at least 15 days.
4. To walk after each meal.
5. To maintain at least a gap of 2 hours before you go to bed.

Follow these measures and revert back to me after 15 days. If required, i would advise you for Endoscopy.
If you have any further query please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
