In brief: Heartburn or GERD
Results from stomach acid refluxing up the esophagus.
Certain foods tend to increase it: fried/fatty foods, chocolate, onions, spicy foods, alcohol, caffeine; many meds can exacerbate it: beta blockers, tetracycline, nsaids, etc. Being overweight exacerbates it, especially when lying down. Elevate head of bed. Try antacids, h2 blockers like axid/pepcid/zantac, or ppis like prilosec/prevacid.—>.

If limiting triggers & trying suggested meds don't relieve symptoms, see doc for further evaluation.
