Hello, welcome to HCM,
Firstly, you are suffering from Gastroesophageal reflux disease.
For this you have to take the prescribed medicine. If you do not take these medicines then in long term there is a chance of getting Barrett's esophagus, which is a premalignant condition.
If the prescribed medicines fail to give you any relief, you can take a anti H pylori prophylaxis.
