Hi there!
You are around 19 kgs underweight according to your height. A suitable diet plan according to your body, lifestyle, GERD issue and eating habits will definitely make you gain weight.
Exercise also plays an important role in weight gain as it helps build muscle.

Hello there...i understand your concern...try eating several small meals instead of three large ones whenever you can...Avoid foods that irritate your stomach, especially those that are spicy, acidic, fried or fatty... avoid coffee,tea etc... Avoid stress,consider calming activities, such as meditation, yoga etc...sleep with head raised position and have dinner at least 2 hours before sleep..do regular exercises...take pantaprazole 40 mg twice daily before food with above....consult physician if symptoms persists.
