Thank you for your question:

Based on the information that you have provided, I believe that you may be suffering from GORD (GERD in the USA) - gastro-oesophageal reflux disease.

There are a number of treatment options including avoiding caffeine (tea, coffee, soda), avoiding laying flat after meals, medications to reduce acid secretion in the stomach (examples include Zantac, Zoton etc)

Since your symptoms have persisted this long, you should discuss with your GP the possible benefits of a referral to a gastoenterologist for an evaluation.
