Hi User
Thanks for posting your query on healthcare magic
Your symptoms suggest that you might be having Acid Peptic Disease commonly known as acidity or wrongly known as gastritis (which is inflammation of stomach)
Few dietary habits associated with this like tea, coffee, spicy food. One can avoid these to get relief but most of the time you require medications. Visit the Doctor he will assess the problem and advise you
In this age group keep possibility of pain originates from heart

Hope this helps, wish you best health
