thanks for choosing healthcaremagic

Since you have pain in the epigastric region ( area above the stomach ) it seems more likely to be gastritis .
hence i suggest certain modifications in your lifestyle and food habits .

Avoid spicy food
consume food containing lots of fibre
avoid oily food
avoin eating pork and beef
eat small meals at regural interval
do not starve yourself
do not eat heavy dinner , have an early dinner , so that the food is completely digested before you sleep
exercise regularly
you can take an over the counter PPI such as Tab . Pantoprazole 40mg once daily before breakfast
If no relief with the above you will need further evaluation
