General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hi, Thanks for using the HCM.
her symptoms are suggestive of acidic reflux, it could be due to malfunctioning of lower esophageal sphincter, better to consult a gastroenterologist, she can take proton pump inhibitors initially, need to undergo upper GI endoscopy to look for pathology, better to avoid spicy food items, as it will cause increased acid production.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon....
