Your symptoms can be suggestive of acid reflux disease and gastritis.

You need to make some dietary changes along with medications. Avoid chocolate fatty foods, coffee, and alcoholic beverages. Avoid beans, cabbage, and carbonated beverages. If you are overweight, lose some weight.

You should avoid smoking( if you do)

You should always drink up to eight glasses of water a day.

You should remain away from stress and anxiety. Start practicing Yoga and meditation. Deep breathing exercises and relaxation techniques will be helpful.

You can elevate the head end of the bed by 8 inches. It would be helpful.

You should avoid these-

beans, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, sprouts, onions, and garlic.

You can eat lean meats, cold-water fish, tofu, beans, olive oil.

Also, you should eat meals at least 2 to 3 hours before bedtime.
