In brief: Reflux and diet

Avoiding the things that incite the reflux, such as caffeine and greasy foods will immediately change how a person feels.
The important thing to note is that abdominal discomfort and bad reflux imply that the situation is worse than just reflux and can be acid-related stomach disease such as gastritis or a brewing ulcer. Diet changes and otc medications are the first step!
