Acid reflux: You have hyperacidty & reflux, you can avoid spicy food, cofee, alcohol & junk food. Try prilosec OTC once a day & antiacids, avoid skipping meals, small frequent light & healthy meals are good for preventing the acid from causing damage to your stomach & see your doctor, you might need some work up. If your symptom persisted to consult a gastroentrologist. Good luck.

Dr. Ghattas is correct! Also don't eat within an hour and a half of bedtime. Elevate torso and head 40-60 degrees on cushions and pillows (or but bricks under box spring at head of bed) and sleep on your right side (the stomach drains on that side).

Mouth sores: you could be having mouth ulcers that are probably viral and will take 5-7 days to improve. Reflux doesn't do that
