Hi Lybrate user, kindly follow some basic life style changes: Aviod taking tea, coffee and spicy food. Take your meals timely and at definitive intervals. Avoid cabbage, capsicum, citrus fruits (for a while). Don't drink water with food, take after 40 min. As much as you want thereafter. Don't lie down immediately after food. Finish your night meal by 7.30 to 8: 00 pm maximum. Always keep your stomach 1/4 th empty. You should divide your meal into 5-6 times a day. Avoid wearing tight pants (it compress your belly/ stomach). Avoid the particular food, which you observed that after taking you feel bloating, fullness, upper abdominal pain/ discomfort, reflux symptoms etc. You can take antacids for symptom control of gastritis. Next Steps In case of Intractable Gastro-esophageal Reflus Disease (GERD, not responding to antacids, then you may need antireflux surgery. (i.e. Laparoscopic Fundoplication)
