Can't tell: For sure, but it sounds like you are suffering from gastroesophageal reflux, or gerd. Ask your doctor for medicines to control your symptoms, but if you have significant damage to your esophagus, you might need to have surgical correction. Also, this could be heart symptoms, so see you doctor asap.
