Esophagitis: GERD (gastric reflux) is very common and could produce your symptoms. An EGD (scope of your upper digestive system) can tell if this exists. In The meantime, OTC products like antacids (Tums, Rolaids), acid blockers (Pepcid, Zantac) can relieve symptoms, as well as eating slowly, sitting up straight and NOT bending (keep head above stomach area).
