It sounds like GERD. gastroesophageal reflux with a hiatal her nia. Have you tried a PPI like prilosec or prevacid or nexium? They are all OTC at a pharmacy. You shoild try one continually for three weeks.

I woild not be concerned given your history. But if you cannot fix this with a ppi you need a gastroenterologist to scope you as there could be H Pylori infection
