GERD: You may need an upper endoscopy. it also depends what medications you have been on. Diet changes and lifestyle measures are important. Losing weight if you need to. Stop smoking if you smoke. Don't lay flat for 2 hours after eating. Limit eating late at night. Limit fatty/spicy foods. Limit alcohol, caffeine and chocolate. Also investigating whether your gallbladder is a cause may help.
