Brief Answer:
Stress is the likely cause of your heartburn

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. The first thing that I would insist for is lifestyle change. In order to control hypertension, the first and foremost thing to do is to avoid stress. Meditation and yoga will help you achieve the same. Stress is teh likely cause of your sleeplessness. Stress also triggers excess gastric acid secretion which is the likely cause of your heartburn. As of now, taking omeprazole once daily before breakfast should help.

Reduce your salt intake. Take the medicine (Amlong) daily and Zolfresh as required. Exercise regularly. You would be fine.

Let me know if I could help further.
