Some drugs also cause this- antihistamines, calcium channel blockers, painkillers, sedatives, and antibiotics when taken on a empty stomach. Pregnancy
also causes this condition. Follow these below instructions:
1. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, tobacco for the time being.
2. Take small bland meals with high fiber content.
3. Avoid spicy foods, carbonated drinks, and pickles.
4. Don't lie down immediately after eating take 2-3 hours gap.
5. Take plain Pantoprazole

If the symptoms persist after all these, consult a gastroenterologist
