In brief: Many things

Many people have trouble with gastritis or reflux, due to hyperacidity or making too much acid.
It can be due to a medical problem like zollinger-ellison syndrome, but most are due to the food you eat, or when you eat it. Numerous medications will help with it. Talk to your doctor about it.
