Thank you for the query.

Your symptoms can be caused by acid reflux disease. However it can be also peptic ulcer, or even stomach cancer. That is why, every symptoms like yours should be diagnosed first, before any long term treatment. To do that upper GI endoscopy should be done. It will rule any stomach diseases out and will also check if there is any Helicobacter Pylori infection. This infection should be treated and without it your symptoms wont go away.

Hope this will help.

There is nothing to worry about visit your Gastroenterologist to have an endoscopy and to check the presence of any inflammation in the stomach or competency of lower oesophageal sphincter.

Take omeprazole 40mg in the morning before breakfast and 40mg in the evening before dinner.
Avoid chillies and fried food.
You will be fine.

I hope I am succesful in solving in your query if you have more you can ask me
Take care

Hello dear...
The symptoms as mentioned by you suggest that you might be having Gastro esophageal reflux disease, which is caused by the reflux of acid from stomach to esophagus due to relaxation of the sphincter at the lower part of esophagus.
Medical management consist of taking Proton pump inhibitors like Omeprazole, Pantoprazole,etc. (which prevent acid formation in stomach)
Metoclopramide can also be used but it has some side effects on long term usage.
Also avoid consuming irritating substances such as acidic & rich foods, caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol.
Try to sleep on the left side, or with your upper body raised.
If symptoms still persist, it will be better to consult a Gastroenterologist.
There is no need to will be fine.
Wish you a good health & speedy recovery.
Thanks & Take care.
