Hello, and thanks for your medical question on E Health Forum.

From the history provided it seems that your symptoms might be due to indigestion, gastric reflux or gastritis.

Here are some tips for you to resolve your symptoms.

1. Change and develop good dietary habits including, eating several small meals daily.

2. Diet should include fresh fruits, fiber rich foods.
Avoid spicy foods, fats and fried foods.
Also avoid coffee, tea, alcohol, colas, and smoking.
Avoid processed foods (Junk foods from refined carbohydrates),
Eat freshly cooked food from whole grains.

3. Adopt proper posture.

4. Don't eat for at least three hours before you go to bed. If you have symptoms at night, try raising the head of your bed six to ten inches.

5. Maintaining adequate hydration.

6. Adopting a sitting upright posture for 1 hr post meals will help in relieving the symptoms.

7. Avoid foods to which you are intolerant.

8. In addition, using activated charcoal (For stomach gas), OTC antacids (tums, mylanta, maalox) and Omeprazole (acid reducer) will also help the symptoms.

You might consider consulting a physician who after a physical examination can rule out other conditions.

I hope this helps.
