Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
We are here to help you on this medical health advice platform.
You seem to be having Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). I would advice you to take a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone for reflux. Also, you should take soft and bland diet. You should also put a pillow below your head when you sleep. Make a habit to walk after all meals. More important here is to avoid alcohol and smoking in case you do. I would also recommend you to take soft and bland diet only.
Share my opinion with your doctor.
I hope it helps.
