Brief Answer:
Get yourself clinically examined and investigated.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that you might be having Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease ( GERD ). I would suggest that you should get yourself clinically examined and investigated.

Following investigations may be helpful :-
1. Endoscopy.
2. Ultrasound of abdomen.
3. Liver Function Test ( LFT ).

I would advise that you should take an antacid like Omeprazole 40mg once a day before meals along with Domperidone 30mg.
Further medical management can be planned according to the reports of the investigations.

Following precautions will be helpful :-
1.Avoid spicy and oily foods.
2.Avoid being empty stomach for long periods.
3.Avoid mental and emotional stress.
4.Avoid smoking and alcohol, if any.
5.Avoid self medications, especially pain killers and steroids.
6.Drink lots of water daily.
7.Eat light meals prepared under hygienic conditions.
8.Avoid gas producing foods like peas, cabbage, legumes, etc.

I hope this is helpful to you.
If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
Regards. Thanks.
