You should take medication such as omeprazole or prilosec daily (this can be bought over the counter). Other things to do are to eat smaller meals more frequently vs larger meals, don't eat two hours before going to bed, avoid foods that make this worse (chocolate, caffeine, alcohol, spicy, citrus, onions, etc), when sleeping keep the head of the bed elevated, if you smoke stopping will help and if you are overweight losing weight will help as well.

yes but is there anything u can take at home to stop it from hurting if you cant get to the store? or is meds the only way?
You can try those measures. Prilosec will help relieve the symptoms. Aleve will not.
