In brief: Hunger

Triggered by an empty unprotected stomach and increases in acid production can cause more heartburn.

In brief: Acid

Your stomach is releasing acid and enzymes in anticipation of food to be digested.
If you cannot eat at this time, at least drink a good amount of water to dilute them. Good Luck.
