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..take pantoprazole 40 mg twice daily before food with above...drink plenty of fluids and add fibre to your diet.

Hello there. I can understand your concern. What kind of a diet do you take? You need to make specific changes in your diet. Drink lots of water. Have high fiber diet, lots of fruits and vegetables. Instead of having 3 full meals, have the same amount of food as 5 smaller meals. Avoid sleeping immediately after food and let there be atleast 3 hour gap between food and sleep. Avoid oily and spicy foods. Take a cap. Pan-L once a day half an hour before food for 5 days and syp. Duphalac 15ml before bed time. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.
