Gastritis or GERD: I suspect you may have either gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining) or gerd (gastroesophageal reflux disease or acid reflux). Diet (caffeine, chocolate, alcohol), tobacco, medications (ibuprofen for example), and infections (h. Pylori) can all be possible causes for the inflammation. I would suggest you see your primary care doctor to discuss symptoms and possible treatment options.
