Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As per your history and description, the possibility of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) is more likely.

Soda, bagel bread, meat etcetera can cause hyperacidity and this, in turn, worsen GERD.

So it is better to follow the below steps for better symptomatic relief in GERD:

1. Avoid hot and spicy food and junk food like bread, soda etcetera.
2. Take Pantoprazole and Levosulperide combination drugs.
3. Avoid stress, tension, and be calm.
4. Keep 2 to 3 pillows under the head in bed to prevent reflux.
5. Go for a walk after meals. Avoid large meals, instead, take frequent small meals.
6. Quit smoking and alcohol if you have these habits.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
