Diet change: If these symptoms are related to gastroesophageal reflux then diet change, decreased total fat intake, avoid large meals, alcohol, acidy food, chocolate, etc. Sometimes dairy products such as yogurt and milk help; otc meds are available.Usual symptoms are chest pain and nausea. If symptoms become severe, see physician for exam and recommendations.
