Probably some workup first to find the reason : test for H.pylori, upper GI endoscopy, X-rays with barium swallow and biopsy if needed. After a cause is identified, then treatment should be directed fot it. Life style modifications: keep head 30. Degrees elevated, not to take any cheese, wine, chocolate, caffeine, spicy or greasy food. Hope it helps. You can add Gaviscon to famotidine.
