Hello
This is suggestive of gastritis.It is an inflammation or irritation of the lining of the stomach.It is caused by a various causes like physical stress,social habits, chemicals, and infections,excessive use of Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

To get relief,take antacid- Gaviscon.It contains alginic acid and sodium bicarbonate.The combination of the alginic acid and bicarbonate will create a foam barrier which floats on the stomach acid,providing great relief from bloating.
Take tab.Ranitidine(Zantac) 150 mg twice a day.Both these are available without a prescription.Avoid smoking & alcohol consumption.Dont take fried,spicy,salty,chilly food items.Avoid those things that irritate your stomach or cause your symptoms to flare up.
