Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

The symptoms that you are having are due to acid reflux. Smoking itself can aggravate acid reflux.

Eat small nutritious meals at frequent intervals instead of a heavy single meal. Exercise frequently and take your dinner atleast 2 hrs prior to bedtime. Also raise the head end of the bed by 2 blocks and try to quit smoking.

If the symptoms persist then get an evaluation done from a physician.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
