thank you for your query.
the complaints you give point towards gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) or "heartburn".
GERD is usually caused by , impaired expulsion of gastric reflux from the esophagus.
it may be triggered by consuming food in large quantities, or specific foods containing certain spices, high fat content, or high acid content and lifestyle choices

The treatment of heartburn depends on the underlying cause.
Medicines such as H2 receptor antagonists or proton pump inhibitors are effective for gastritis and GERD, the two most common causes of heartburn. Antibiotics are used if H. pylori is present
also healthy lifestyle changes like eating and sleeping at regurlar intervals and resular sleep patterns..

thank you,
wishing you good health.
