Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I am Dr K. I have over 25 years of clinical experience and look forward to answering your question. i may need more information from you, so I may ask for that. My goal is to provide a complete answer to your question and to be sure you are satisfied with that answer.

I am sorry that you are having this problem but will do my best to assist you and answer your questions.    It sounds like your Mom has acid reflux.    The Naproxen will make it much worse.   Acid reflux can be treated with an over the counter antacid like Mylanta or Tums.  It can also be treated with omeprazole.   No prescription is needed.

Thank you for trusting Just Answer with your question. Please let me know if you have additional concerns or need me to clarify something. I am happy to help.

You think it could be anything serious or something easy to treat

Bear in mind that the website is for general information only.   We cannot know if its anything serious based on 5 lines of information.    It does sounds like it could be serious and I would suggest that she get medical care.
