In brief: Could be reflux

You might be having a problem with reflux (gerd).
Try cutting back caffeine (coffee, tea, soda), avoiding lying down for 1-2 hrs after eating, limiting mints, mint gum, citrus items. Monitor your diet to see if you can see a connection between food(s) you're eating and your symptoms and then limit those items. If these things aren't helping, see your doctor.
