Thanks for coming to HCM. You need to be evaluated for hiatus hernia. Please contact your gastroenterologist who might do X-ray and/or endoscopy of your upper food tract. Hiatus hernia is a condition when a part of stomach protrudes through diaphragm into the chest.
While you visit the doctor, you can take antacids if not taking already.
Wish you get better soon!
