From last 15 days my father is having acidity problem. Burnt feeling in chest, the feeling is somewhat controlled by drinking water. He is having Aciloc tablet. Once he ate it, the burnt feeling remains off for approx 12 hrs. What is the problem and how should it be treated.

Avoid tea/coffee alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done.
