Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that you might be having muscular pain.
I would suggest that you should get yourself clinically examined before starting any treatment.

You can take painkiller like Ibuprofen one tablet twice a day after meals along with muscle relaxant like chlorzoxazone for relief.
Local application of pain relieving gel may be helpful.
Continue with the antacids you have mentioned.

I hope this is helpful to you.
