This is most likely only functional dyspepsia.

The condition is not serious and can be resolved by certain life style changes.

These include eating several small meals at regular intervals rather than large meals, eating at least 3 hours before you sleep, avoiding foods like chocolates ,coffee, tomatoes, oranges and spicy food which are known to worsen dyspepsia.

In addition you may consider elevating the head end of the bed by few inches at night.

Please reply for nay clarification.
