Reflux: This sounds like acid reflux to me, especially that you are taking advil, (ibuprofen) Aspirin and Ibuprofen that all can cause gastritis. You need to stop taking them, start with an otc antacid and get evaluated by your doctor.

Reflux: It sounds as if you might have gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd). It is caused when stomach acid flows up into your esophagus. It can be treated with changes in your diet as well as over the counter treatments such as antacids and Omeprazole (proton pump inhibitor). If it persists i would discuss with your primary care physician as damage to the esophagus can occur.
