In brief: Indigestion
This could be chronic reflux from the esophagus (gerd).
This problem can become serious if allowed to go unchecked for a prolonged period. See your local ENT doctor and perhaps a GI doctor to find out what is going on. In the mean time you can try otc Prilosec and head elvation at night as a temporary solution. Even if this works you still need an expert to check you out.
