Acidity with slight pain

Hi,
From past few days, my father is suffering from acidity with slight pain in middle of chest. Though the problem of acidity is persisting from past few years but from last few days he is quite unwell. And he  had a problem of constipation from long ago. Because of all this he is not able to take proper sleep.

Hi
tell him to try eating several small meals instead of three large ones whenever you can.Avoid foods that irritate his stomach, especially those that are spicy, acidic, fried or fatty.avoid coffee,tea etc.Stress may make his gastritis symptoms worse. Stress may be hard to avoid, but he can learn to cope with it. If he has trouble relaxing, consider calming activities, such as meditation, yoga etc...tell him to sleep with head raised position and  have dinner atleast 2 hours before sleep..consult doctor for specific treatment
