Good Day
If you have heartburn and symptoms of GERD, follow these instructions everyday -
(1) Avoid eating spicy food, concentrated fruit juices, hot food, hard food
(2) Drink plenty of water, some curds, milk to give relief
(3) Don't lie down immediately after eating food. Lie with your head end of the bed 15cm high using pillows.
(4) Continue taking the medication given by the Doctor.

You may request the Doctor to do an endoscopy to confirm if you have GERD. Discuss other possible methods of treatment also.
