Please wait.

I am writing the answer.

Thank you for your patience.

Thank you for waiting.

I understand your concern.

I am very sorry for your symptoms.

Your symptoms can be due to acid problem. .

Gastroesophageal reflux can be there.

Muscle strain is possible too.

You can continue Paracetamol & Omeprazole now.

You can take antacid 3-4 times 2 hours after food and at bedtime.

Over the counter medicine like Gaviscon can help.

In addition to medicines, you need to have some lifestyle modification like avoiding tea, chocolate, coffee, alcohol, tobacco which aggravate the condition.

Take bland non spicy, low fat diet.

Avoid late night food.

You can also have the head end of the bed raised.

If the symptom does not improve, I would advise to take an examination by your doctor.

I hope this information will be helpful.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Your satisfaction is my goal.
