Hi, you are suffering from gastritis. In 90% of people the microorganism called Helicobacter pylori is responsible for this problem. Eradication of H.pylori will cure this condition.
Various anti H.pylori kits consisting of different combination of drugs are available. An anti H.pylori kit containing Clarithromycin 500mg + Amoxicillin 1000mg + Lansoprazole 30mg - will be effective for you. This should be taken two times a day for two weeks. For complete cure and relief of symptoms you should take it daily without fail, otherwise recurrence is possible. Amoxicillin & Clarithromycin are antibiotics effective against H.pylori. Lansoprazole is an anti ulcer drug & reduces acid production.
The heart burn & acid reflux you are experiencing are due to hyper acidity & will also be controlled by lansoprazole present in this kit. Also avoid spicy food
