Brief Answer:
it could be gastritis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Your symptoms are that of gastritis.

I usually start my patients with similar complaints on ppi tablets like pantaprazole or omeprazole on empty stomach one hour before food. And I would advice you the same.

Also avoid tea, coffee, soda drinks and spicy foods.

Hope I have been helpful.

Regards,
Dr. Ashish Verma
