Acid Reducer: Try an OTC acid-reducer like zantac (ranitidine) or prilosec for 1-2 weeks. Don't take it longer than that without consulting your doctor. If it doesn't help then you need to see your doctor for further workup. In the meantime avoid fatty foods as well as spicy or acidic foods. Also don't smoke, avoid chocolate and caffeine.
