Heartburn: You could be experiencing what is commonly known as "heartburn" (gastroesophageal reflux disease) or it could be something more complicated like gastritis or an ulcer. Make sure to avoid irritants such as spicy foods, alcohol, tobacco, nsads, and caffeine and don't eat right before bed. See your doctor for further testing (h. Pylori testing, esophageal pH monitoring, egd) to determine the cause.

Would strongly second Dr. Patterson's advice. You may have an esophageal hernia with secondary Barrett's esphagus. Suggest seeing a gastroenterologist.
